Hello, I want to upgrade my NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT with 512MB to some thing better. I believe that the power supply is 550w. Have a Intel core 2 duo quad processor Q8400 @2.66GHz. Running Win 7 ultimate 32 bit with 4GB of RAM and run a single monitor.

I mainly use my computer for gaming and just want the graphics to run better/faster.

Ex.
Mass effect
Dragon age 2
League of Legends
Rift
and D3 when it comes out.

I don't want anything above 150 dollars if it's possible.

What is the monitor resolution you are playing at? Ex: 1920x1080... 1366x768.... etc...

At that resolution, the HD 6870 or a HD 6850 should do fine. :)

Those are okay cards, but at a resolution like that, they may start to choke a little.

I'd recommend the HD 6850 .

Awesome thanks guys. The 6850 is probably my best bet and it's at a pretty good price. If you guys have any other suggestions, feel free to post.
