Need a graphics card for a 1280x1024 display

im looking for a good graphics card that will play modern games such as Fallout:New Vegas Black Ops Diablo 3(upon release) and MW3 with great fps on an older monitor which displays at 1280x1024 im currently lookin at a 550ti superclocked but im thinking i may be paying for way more than i need im going to be building a budget rig and the setup im looking at is

CPU=Intel Core i3-2120 @3.3GHz
RAM=4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1033MHz
Motherboard=ASRock P67 PRO3
HDD=500GB

Also I would prefer a GeForce over a ATI

Thank you for any suggestions

  1. Just check out the benchmarks of games at the lowest resolution (which is usually higher than 1280x1024). Get whatever puts out 60+ FPS on full settings at that resolution.

    Or you could look into a better monitor + GPU - you can get some 23" 1920x1080 monitors for ~$150 nowadays.
