What is the best possible GPU to go with this CPU?


I'm looking to postpone getting a brand new gaming PC for a year or so by upgrading various components of my 3,5 year old rig.


Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3,16 GHz (Stock)
2x 500GB SATA 2 HDD Western Digital
1x 64GB Samsung 830 SSD
2x4 GB Corsair DDR3 1600 Mhz RAM
Asus P5Q3 Deluxe Wifi/@P
750W Corsair PSU
EVGA Geforce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB GDDR3
Antec P182

As you can see I have a decent graphics card, but I do want some more fps in games like BF3. My question is simple: What is the best possible GPU that I can upgrade this system with that my CPU will not be (or at least not much) bottlenecking?

More about what
  1. I am not looking to necessarily max out every setting, just playing at a playable fps rate.

    I play on 1920x1200, medium settings and 30-40 fps would be fine.

    Budget is not an issue btw.
