Kindly suggest me a good graphic card to go with the following spec of my cpu.
Processor : Intel i5 2500k @ 3.3Ghz
Ram : 8 GB DDR3
PSU : 550w
OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit.
[My CPU is good but my monitor is a small one and i DONT wanna get a new monitor , i dont care about it]
Monitor : 15 inches LCD [ please suggest me GFX card in the minimum range to go with a 15 inch monitor]
My Budget is like 300$ , i need to be able to play games like Assassin's Creed 3 , Hitman Absolution and ESPECIALLY games like Crysis 2 at Ultra settings with a good amount of FPS. As i mentioned before my monitor is low , so i just wanna be able to play games with 1280x1024 reso , dont care above it and dont want below it with good FPS [ like above 40 ]
@ geekapproved , i understand what your trying to say , but i seriously dont care on how big a screen i am playing on. My monitor might be small , but 1280x1024 is all i need and even if my budget is 300$ , i am trying to save as max as possible out of it.

@ daswilhelm , thanks but , i just compared that card , not upto my mark , can u find me something a little bit better?
That's fine, I just don't see the point of playing Crysis 2 on Ultra with a Mickey Mouse monitor, it doesn't make sense to me, I think $105 on a nice HD, and efficient LED monitor is the best $105 you could possibly spend. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
Anything over $100 would be a complete waste of money for that monitor.
I literally drooled on myself when I upgraded from a 19" to a 22", 3yrs ago. I couldn't imagine what going from a 15" to a 22" would be like.
You have one of the faster cpu's out there, you should have a nice monitor and a nice graphics card to go with it.
