More about what graphics card
  1. With that CPU, which is kinda average, look along the lines of a GTX560 or maybe whatever the 7000 series equivalent of a 6870 (7770?) is. Or wait for something like a GTX650...

    But the thing being you'd need a better CPU for much more.
  2. A 560Ti would work great at that reaolution, and with that cpu and power supply
  3. 6870...

    DON'T Put it on your AMD Athlon X2 5000+ system, put it in your:

    AMD Athlon II 650 Quad-core processor 3.2Ghz
    8GB DDR3 Ram
    Windows 7 64-bit
    PSU 600W
    Resolution 1600x900

    Here is a cheap 6870

    I don't think it would bottleneck your CPU in any way. But just make sure this card fits nicely in your case.
  4. Yeah, HD6870. Or if rebates are ok to get under $200 consider a GTX 560 Ti.
