I would recommend a 7850 or a 7870. Both good cards and shouldn't create a bottleneck with your cpu.

These two would get the job done! If you need something more powerfull step it up to the 7950.

Three cards ranging in price from 200 to 300. All three would play the games you want at high to highest settings, and you would get great fps. Its just all about how much you want to spend on the upgrade. If it were me and I had the cash I would go for the Sapphire 7950.
