Which games do you want to play? What is your budget? How big is your power supply unit? Is your computer case standard size?

Budget doesn't really matter. But $100-$200 would be nice. You have to explain to me about the power supply unit. And I think it's standard size case. Not sure. But it's about the same size as most pc

Well, you have two options.

1. Closer to $100 option. Get HD 7750. That's the fastest card you can get without a power supply upgrade.
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7750 - $109.99

2. $200 option. Get a new power supply and HD 6870 with it.

HIS Radeon HD 6870 - $169.99
Corsair CX 500 - $59.99

Total: $229.98 BEFORE rebates. Gets lower after them

You really get what you pay for. HD 6870 is around 60% faster. Can't really tell you more because you didn't say which games you played. Also, is your resolution really 1280x960? I have never ever seen a monitor with such resolution! Are you using your native resolution?
