I am ready to upgrade to a new video card as for the one I have now is going bad. The video card that I currently have is the MSI R4770 CYCLONE Radeon HD 4770. It was a great card, but after 3 years of using this card it is overheating and it looks like it is going bad. So, I've been out of the video card game for over 3 years and I wanted to know a good card that is fast for a 24" monitor 1920x1080 full high definition.
I am ready to try an NVIDIA card or one that is in my $100-120 budget range. Looking for something that was last year 2011 top of the line card within my budget range and not the latest and greatest.
I am planning to play games like DC UNIVERSE ONLINE, Call of Duty, etc. all high settings. One that is quiet and it does not overheat like the one I currently have. One that will run smooth and fast with nice graphics.
as it was referred to me by one of the members here on the forum 3 years ago which I was very satisfied with it.

If you can stretch your budget by $10 and don't mind doing a MIR, I'd suggest picking up a Radeon 6850 - it's a very nice upgrade over your current card and much more powerful than anything you're gonna find in the $100-120 range.
thx bigmack70 and Rockdpm. That XFX bigmack70 posted is so far looking like a winner after I do my research on that card. I'll check into the 7770 and the GTX 460. I'll keep you guys posted after I made my final purchase.
If anyone else has other suggestions withing that budget range, plz feel free to share.
That's inaccurate users reviews. Don't trust them. Only people with bad experiences tend to post there, and countless who had good experiences didn't. The card has good warranty by XFX, and you can RMA it if you don't like it. I'd say go for it.
