At this point pretty much any card you go to will be a solid step up. If you spend in the $140 range and get
a 6850 you are talking about multiplying the performance of your current card many times over.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, the i5 will NOT be held back by 99% of cards.

hang-the-9 said:
With that system, any of the low to mid range cards from here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... will do the trick. You can run a pretty big card on that power supply, but the i5 will hold it back a bit, so no need to go over mid-range.

The i5 is one of the best CPUs right now, how is it going to hold him back?

Recommendation: if you have 1920x1080 go for
560Ti you can get them for 199.99

or get 6870
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $170

if your monitor is not 1080p than get 6850
