I recently bought a 6770, and are looking to make an upgrade to a better card before the 30 day period is over

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week BUDGET RANGE: $100-150 CAD After Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Battlefield Heroes, DiRT3, Skyrim, Shogun II, some MMORPG's), Power computing, Youtube, Video calls, Multitasking (on skype with three chrome windows open while playing a game)

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Gigabyte Radeon HD 6770, Corsair 600 Watt PSU

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Corsair Vengeance RAM (2 X 4GB), Intel i5-2500k, Asus P8Z68-V LX

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Preferably Tiger Direct, Maybe Newegg if the price is over $10-15 better.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada

PARTS PREFERENCES: No Preference, Something with good tech support and a decent warranty, especially if OC'ed

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, only if the card is factory overclocked

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Probably not.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Currently a 19 inch 1024x768, Will upgrade to a 20-24 inch 1920x1080 monitor soon (In about 1-2 months)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Must be able to run with current PSU, must provide decent performance, and basically everything i listed above. The cheaper the better IMO, also note that i wont be running games with 8XAA or stuff like that, probably just high detail.

Thanks!
