APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This weekend.

BUDGET RANGE: $100-$130 Before Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: iRacing (max settings preferably).. not much of a gamer but I would like a card that provides me the option to possibly play other games later on, online poker, watching HD videos

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: On board Radeon 4250, OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: AMD Athlon II X3 (unlocked 4th core), ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO MoBo, 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws (probably upgrading this to 8GB or 16GB also)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: Prefer ATI/AMD in case I want to add monitor(s) later on. If there's a legitimate reason I should consider NVIDIA I would definitely consider it.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, Maybe CrossFire in the future.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: None.
