You guys are suggesting a 7850 and he has a dual core? Interesting....
I wouldn't go any higher then a 6850. (GTX560 or something similar if you favor Nvidia.) I fear that dual core CPU is going to hold you back a lot more then the others do.
so 6850 should be edge for e5700 without lag
actually none of us asked you what resolution you are playing at. shame on us because that could make a difference.
i am not going to disagree that a 7850 might be too much, you do have an older cpu and if the games you play put a big load on it, there will be a bottleneck.
i still think you can do a bit better than a 7770 in my opinion, the 650ti would be better without taking as much of a chance of getting lag. and better performance of the 6850:
