  1. Here's a link to a stong GPU. I think it's more powerful than the card you were originally looking at.

    It's a 6870 for about $20 out of the price range you were seeking. But I believe the performance justifies the price difference. Fairly powerful card.

    Also, if you plan on overclocking that CPU, you'll need to get an aftermarket cooler. Something like this will suffice...
