This is the Best and Cheap for you. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Look for more 7770 in your range.

Tell your other specs too. Like CPU, PSU and Mobo.
You should be good at that resolution


And GT GTS GTX are just models names.
Best of them is GTX. You must have heard them. ;)

yup 7770 from amd or 7750 if you dont want a new power supply or gtx 650 from nvidia or gt 640 if you dont want a new power supply. so basically 640<650=7750<7770

As a general statement, the amount of VRAM has no effect on performance unless you go beyond a certain resolution. For resolutions of 1920x1200 or lower 1GB of VRAM is fine. 2GB of VRAM does not matter until you play games above 1920x1200 resolution, but the graphic must be powerful enough to play games at those very high resolution.

The GT 640 could have 16GB of VRAM it does not matter, it will be beaten by a GTX 650 with 1GB of VRAM.

In general, the first number is the generation or architure, very import. The second number is a ranking within the generation, low mid high. The last one or two are small differences, like clocks speeds. So think this year's mid range card or last years high end card. A high end card that is older maybe better that new card that is on the lower end. But a high end card from a newer generation is going to be better than a high end card from a previous generation (again usually).

Look at the benchmarks and hierarchy charts.

P.S. You cpu was decent when it was new, but it getting old and obsolete. It will start holding you back and limiting your options.
