THIS PC IS ALREADY BUILT I JUST NEED A GPU

I dont think I really need an extremely powerful card because my screen res is pretty low. I don't want something that could bottleneck my cpu or something that would be obsolete in a year.I think that the amd hd 5570, 5870, 6850 and 6870 are good enough for my gaming needs but i need your expertise in helping me choose between these cards or in suggesting other cards in the price range.

well the best card within your budget would be the amd radeon 7770.
its a very fast card for the price and will easily play all your games at near max at 1366*768,
this card should last you atleast 2-3 years before you would need to upgrade

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card - 120$

- this card is a Radeons GHZ edition which uses low power and will not be bottle necked
- you need not have to upgrade your graphic card for few years
- Even GTA V will be buttery smooth ( not released although)
- Comes in hand for about 120$
- 500 watt power supply is just enough for gfx card.

If you could find a 6870 at the same price range of a 7770, I would definitely go for that. A 6870 creams the 7770 in basically everything.

I'll just get the hd 7770 because the 6870 is probably harder to find since the 6870 is older. Anyway, thanks for replying guys! I really appreciate all of your help. I'll edit this post once I get a 7770.
