Its the best your going to do on your budget bro, unless you go second hand.

It'll play most games maxed out, just not the more demanding games like BF3 or Metro 2033.

As ingutsfatak said, it will be fine for most games for now. But some of the more demanding titles can cause issues, and it could start to feel quite dated in a years time or more. But it is just a matter of budget really, just pick the best you can afford according to the tiered list: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... (take care that your power supply is good enough and your cpu is not going to hold you back though)

@Charlie_west, Your PSU will be fine.

@Koogco You pronounced my name wrong! :lol:

How on earth did I get the name THAT wrong...

Anyway, if that 800w is real (Sometimes its just a number printed on the side of the thing, with no relation to the contents) it would be enough for two of those graphic cards even.
You write it as "gold" in your description, if that is 80+ gold rating then you are definitively in no trouble!

If a 6850 is the limit of your budget get that or spend 10%to15% more and get 33% more performance with a 6870

In what world? Maybe 10% more performance.

I'm surprised you all missed the card "charlie_west" listed...it's a Geforce GTS 250, not a GTX 250...no such card. But to the the question... I checked around on various sites and, for the money you want to spend...the HD 6850 would be the best option for you.
