Hello I just built a new computer and am wondering what card I should put in my sytem. I am currently running an Raedon HD 6450.

My current setup is
Video Card: Raedon HD 6450
Ram: 8 Gigs of DDR 3 1600MHZ
CPU: FX 4100 3.6 Quad Core
PSU: 550 W
I like to play games like SC 2, Diablo 3, Rage, Modern Warfare 3, Dues Ex: Human Revolution. I would like to be able to run them on the highest settings if possible.
Thanks for your time.
Just a side note my friend offered to sell me his 2 gtx 260 for $60 total. Would it be worth buying for this system even if I can only use the one?
Mike

I have a budget of around 150 dollars, but my friends two GTX 250 he will sell to me at 60 dollars may be a good deal.

GTX250 or 260 ? Anyway with both you won't have DX11, so they're some sort of dead end.

I would pay 20 bucks above the budget and get a 6870.

Though if you're on a tight budget the 260 (x2) is a nice card for $60 and you'll even have a spare one then. You can't sli them with this psu and don't see your mobo, but a single 260 crushes a 6450. http://www.hwcompare.com/10312/geforce-gtx-260-vs-radeo...
