Just got a new system (specs below) that I was going to put my old 9800GT in as a place holder for a few months. Turns out the 9800GT is fried, so I'm going to have to get a video card sooner than anticipated.
I've got a crap monitor that only supports 1680x1050 (DCLCD 20.1"), but I may buy one that supports higher res in the future.
Any suggestions for a video card for moderate gaming (mostly strategy games, Total War series, RPG's like Skyrim, the odd FPS like ARMA2/3)? I'd like to spend around $100 (in Canada).

I just put the 6750 there in case the OP's budget was extremely strict. If not, I would go with either of our options that we listed. I believe they are about the same if not a slight edge with the 550Ti.
That being said, if the OP does not like MIR's, living in Canada I would think, then I think the 6770 would be a little bit better choice.
