First off, Good morning/Afternoon everyone.

I am looking to slap a good video card into my current setup which I will detail in a few moments. I have built my computer around the "Scorpius" platform(Gasps not the FX cpu's :pt1cable:  ) and would love to utilize this platform by putting in the best graphics card I can.

Setup is as follows.
AMD FX 4100
Asrock Extreme 3 motherboard
8gigs G Skill Ripjaw ram
Vista Ultimate 64bit( Soon enough should have 7)
Antec 500w powersupply

If anyone has a good suggestion I would appreciate it.

Have a great day! :) 

Edited because I put Bulldozer instead of Scorpius.

What is your budget?
HD7850 would be my choice but you can put anything you want and your PSU can handle!

I guess my budget would have to be $200 and below, as with everyone money is a little tight. But to be a gamer I would like to have as much quality as I can.

It's like a woodworker who only uses Black and Decker, gotta upgrade that crap because your performance will suck.

I think an 7770 will do nice @ 500w

Check out this list of best gaming cards for the money:

Looks like a 6870 or GTX560 @$175.
Either will run on your 500w psu.
Check prices, since they do change.
