So here's the thing,I want to do a PC upgrade but am tight on budget.I want a card that can run most games maxed out(i.e Battlefield 3,Crysis 2,Metro 2033,Witcher 2...) though AA and AF doesn't really matter,just want to turn all that eye candy on and have a good experience,though my monitor doesn't support resolutions higher than 1280x1024.If there's a cheap monitor and a good card that can run games maxed out on 1600x1200 or 1080p that would be good to know but no a primary goal at the moment.Plus I need a good CPU that wouldn't bottleneck the card Any suggestions?
Specs are as follows:
1 Kingston 2GB RAM
Nvidia 9500GT
Acer AL1717
Core 2 Duo 2.93 GHz
500 GB HDD
D946GZIS motherboard(maybe I need to upgrade that to support dual slot cards,I don't really know)

What is your PSU?
Get yourself a cheap GTS250 or HD4850 on eBay, then you can maxed out most of games at 1280x1024 (without buy a new monitor).
But I need more detail about your PSU, first... :)
