Hello guys, I'm new to this community and I need help. I need a GPU (ATI or Nvidia, I don't care) that can run games like Starcraft 2, Crysis, Modern Warfare 2, and Crysis 2 at the best settings with smooth fps. And these cards are in my budget range:

GT430 1GB, GT220 1GB, GT220 1GB OC, GT430 OC, 9800GT 512MB, GT430 2GB, GT440 512MB, GTS520 1GB, HD4670 512MB, HD5570 1GB, HD5670 1GB, HD6570 1GB

What is the best GPU for me?

My specs:

Athlon II X2 250 3.0 GHz (If I can OC it, please tell me how)
Sparkle GeForce 9500GT 1GB DDR2
ASUS M4N68T-M LE V2 Motherboard
Kingston 2GB RAM (1x2GB)
WD Elements 750GB HDD
Samsung SyncMaster EX2020 20" 1600x900 LED Monitor

Approximate purchase date: January 2012

If those cheap low end cards could run high end games like Crysis on max settings there would be no reason for more expensive cards to exist.

None of those will max modern games.

Raw performance 9800GT but getting old, newer tech and more logical purchase HD5670. Those are pretty demanding games so don't expect to much.

If none of those cards can run it on max then what is the best card I can buy from my choices?

Like that guy above me said, the raw performance of the 9800GT can't be beat but is showing age (I had an 8800GT, literally the same card) It runs games like SC2 on high with no issues but if you plan to play something like Marine Arena, that might not be the best choice. Also, AMD in the lower end will crush most Nvidia offerings, the 5670 is the best of the GT series cards you have listed.

so from all of the GPU's that I listed, the 5670 is the best?
