Graphics card for g620

hi. what's a good graphics card for a pentium g620? i am using radeon 5570 right now with it right now. i use this
desktop mainly for gaming, and i play mostly single player rpg's. while this can play most rpg's, it struggles with
skyrim and the witcher 2. i play both of these on low settings, and even then i had to lower the resolution to 1280x720
just to get past the kayran in the witcher 2, as i experienced massive lags in there which led to many deaths. at the least, i want to be able to play these games and other upcoming rpg's on medium settings at least, and decent FPS. (though i must admit, the witcher looks gorgeous even on low settings)

i am looking at a budget of $100-150, which means that it's an either-or situation for me: either i replace the cpu or the video card. or should i replace both?

  1. Your CPU is moderate. get a new Graphics Card like:
    XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card - $150
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150573
    You'll see huge performance gain.
  2. I'd get the largest card you can afford. If you can get the HD 6870 for $150 as amuffin suggests, go for it. Framerate is mainly about the graphics card.
