I am looking to get into PC Gaming and am looking for some graphics card recommendations. My budget is up to $200.

I plan to use my 1080p plasma tv TC-P42G10 as the display

My specs:
OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
Kingston 8GB

Best solution

Radeon 6870 is a good pick under $200. The nVidia 560 is also but the new nVidia drivers like to crash in web video so you may want to avoid that till they release a better version.

If it's Radeon, I usually prefer Sapphire. But all the others are just as good. For NVIDIA, EVGA ,ASUS or Gigabyte.

If you can afford a little bit more look into the gtx 570's

Thanks for the input, but I think that is probably a step above of what I'm looking for. If I do get into PC gaming then I will consider the higher end cards.

Wait for the GTX 660ti to come out in two weeks and then pick up a 7850 or 7870 for $200 depending on how low the prices fall.
