    You can get a 7870 if you stretch your budget a tad, so your best bet is probably that. I included the 560 Ti simply because you have such a small monitor, but a 7870 will be more powerful, and should still be in your budget range. It really comes down to if you plan to upgrade to a 1080p screen later on.
