Specs: AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6Ghz - 4GB DDR2 RAM - 650W PSU - GeForce 9800 GT 512MB (Broken) - ASUS M4N78 Pro Motherboard

I need new GPU in the $80 - $120 Range, my 9800gt died on me couple weeks ago and i'm looking for a card to replace till i start a new build later this year, i was thinking about a 6770, 7770 or a gtx550ti.

Any suggestions would be great.

7770. No doubt the best at that price range. Look around and you'll find deals on it.

I have recently just built my first desktop from ground up. I spent days finding the right hardware. I finaly decided to buy the EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 2GB Ed. I found this on NewEgg refurb for $110. I currently play Battlefield 3, Farcry 3, Portal, and other minor games on max settings. I have no complaints with it so far. I love it!

If I had to come up with a con, I'd say when you put it on your motherboard, the top plastic part is facing down so you can't see the cool stickers... :( 

Overall I love it and have no cons for it. Recommended to anyone!! (Right in your price range too!!)

I hate to break it to you, but the GTX 550 Ti is about equal to the Radeon HD 7750. The 7770 is significantly faster.

@OP: The 7770 is the best bet, but it might be possible to find a GTX 650 Ti for $110. It's faster than the 7770. In fact, here's one at $110 after a rebate, with Borderlands 2 thrown in:

Exactly. 7770 > 550ti. Also a 550ti will not max out Battlefield. Maybe Medium at 1080p.

Buy a 7770! All benchmarks for your price range will suggest it.

Well, the GTX 650 Ti is an option to consider too. It doesn't compare well against the 7850, but if you can squeeze it into this price range it does beat the 7770.
