  1. hd 6870 would be the best you can get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161389 ($150 after rebate)

    if you want something newer, then get the hd7770 ghz edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127664 ($125 after rebate)

    if you want to go nvidia, then get the gtx 460 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125412

    p.s hd7770 is your best bet if you don't want to upgrade your psu.
  2. Thanks for the help. One last question if I wanted to upgrade my psu what would you recommend? And if my budget was bigger what would be the best graphics card for my current setup?

    you upgrade psu dependant on how much power you need. on which specific psu to use, I tend to pick ones with the best price to performance ratio. as of now, Antec has a 15% off psu sale.

    If you could spend $100 more, then the hd7850 would be a good choice. A gtx 560 ti for $220 isn't so bad either.
    antec earthwatts 500d, corsair tx650 would be good psus for those gpus.
  5. Ok ended up getting antec ea-650 for $49.99 and asus gtx 560 directCuii OC for $159.99 after rebate with batman arkham city. Overall very happy with purchase.
    P.s WOW!! I didnt realize just how slow my old card really was.thanks again
  6. enjoy!! I upgraded from a 9500gt to a gtx560, so I know how your feeling :)
