COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: India

PARTS PREFERENCES: Sapphire Cards or Nvidia Geforce

OVERCLOCKING: No

CROSSFIRE: No

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I had mentioned in my earlier post that there is a small gap between the sata port and pcie slot on my MoBo, as results my options are limited.I can use only cards like Sapphire 5770/6770 Vapour -X as they have an opening at the back. If you know any other card better then this one with same opening, please suggest it to me.

If you are worried about the graphics card causng problems with the SATA port, then you could just simply buy a right angled SATA cable - this would give you greater choice of graphics cards to buy

I would get a 6870, they are cheap 150-180$. You'll be able to max out any game right now and future proof yourself for a new monitor decently well. I play at the same size screen right now and I have one with the X4 965 @ 4ghz w/ 8 gigs and I can play anything maxed out even with some AA.

I looked at other high end cards,bt all of them are covering all my sata ports. Also i very little space is left above the sata ports hence i cant attach right angled sata cables

If money isn't an object why don't you get a whole new system? This is an HTPC right? I guess your integrated graphic should be sufficient, if it is not, buy a 6670 or 6570.

i think you should change your motherboard if you want to install higher cards that should be a problem solution or just buy an hd 6770.:)
