My video card is now due to an upgrade. My computer is still good (in my opinion) and with a new video card I think I would be still good for 1-2 years.
I know my current build is now a bottleneck for current video cards (I guess).
What would be the best single card my system would take (PCIe 2.0 x16 is the best my motherboard can take)? I really prefer Nvidia over ATI. I'm not really in a hurry to buy a new one (I can wait fow the 660s and 670s I guess).
I play games form World of Warcraft to Battlefield 3. And I like to play at max settings...

Core 2 Quad is still decent enough today for midrange cards. A 560 Ti 448 or original 560 Ti could be a good choice.
