I have an old Core2Duo 6700 @ 2.66 Ghz with 4 Gigs of Ram and a Geforce 8800GT. I'm interested in upgrading the vid card so that Diablo 3 would run a bit smoother on 1680x1050. Any ideas on something that wont be super bottlenecked by the processor? This is for an extra rig to have available for LAN games so I'm not really looking to replace it with a new $1000 build :)

Get a HD6770 for $110. Apparantly, its better than a HD6850 for Diablo 3. And if your PSU can handle a 8800, you shouldnt have any problems.

Pick up a new HD 6670 or a used 4850/4870

Well that doesn't make sense mate... Maybe a driver problem?

Getting a GTX 550 would be dumb when you can get a HD 6770 for the same price and much better performance.
