Hello,

I have a AMD athlon x2 dual core 2.8ghz, 4gb ram, and a 9500gt. I know it's an old system so I can't just drop in a 570gtx because I know it will be bottlenecked by the old rig so my question is, what old but best video card could I just plug and play into my rig to play games such as ARMA II with high settings? Currently I play that game at the lowest settings and it still isn't really playable.

500 watt. If you don't mind could you list a few video cards? It doesn't have to be 500 watt. Let's just say psu doesn't matter. What cards would you recommend?

Oops sorry I lied, it's a 400watt psu. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I rushed home to check. Thought it was a 500watt. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with a few video cards that meet my setup and a few that would fit a different psu. I don't mind buying a better psu to fit a better card. I'm also getting a 6 pin pci adapter 2x4 pin to 6 pin because a friend just gave me a 9800gt.
