Alright folks, I need a new graphics card so I can finally do some heavy ENB shading in Skyrim! Here are my specs:

Intel i5 - 2310 @ 3.2 GHz
HIS HD 6670 1GB GDDR5
8GB Ram
1360x768 60Hz Monitor
500w PSU


I know my monitor sucks, I plan on upgrading as soon as I get back to work :D 
I need to know what graphics card I should get so i can be future proof when I upgrade my monitor later on. Is the GTX 550Ti worth it for my resolution? Or should I get a GTX 460? I don't really like AMD anymore so i need a new nVidia card ;) 


My price range is $100-150. I plan on getting a 1920x1080 monitor soon before my graphics card so can my HD 6670 play Skyrim on high at that resolution?

Arigatou!

Go for HD 6770/ HD 7750 instead of gtx550i. They are similar to gtx550ti, but cost less than 550i.

The thing is, I want a nVidia card because of Physx. AMD has good cards for the price, but it doesn't have Phyx and i doubt I'll ever SLi so i'm looking for a single power house. :D

Nvidia physx is for higher card like 560ti or higher. Low range card like 550ti will give you that much performance. In fact physx require a dedicated physx card. So you will not get much benefit from 550ti.
