Hi

A GTX560 would be a good step up from your current card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I know its still $10 over budget after the MIR but figured if your willing to spend a little extra its worth it for the performance increase over the competition.

If you would rather stay below $150 then the HD7770 or HD6850 are good alternatives.

I'd be inclined to check the make and model of your PC's 500W PSU though, I'd never recommend upgrades with a generic PSU

+1 Owning that same card myself, I can say that's definitely a great card, and a great little OC'er. I have the same question about the PSU though. A generic 500W that can't actually live up to the stated wattage will be a problem.

so the next best would be the 560 but what is the difference between that 560 and the lowered priced 560s (which were on the same page as that) like this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Less memory bandwidth (192 bit vs. 256) and the Asus card is a factory OC model with a much better cooling solution. That SE card is a just a neutered version of a normal 560. Not worth it.

It should fit in that case just fine and it'll work with the mobo with no problem.
