Be more specific on what your budget is. It might be better to get a mid range current gen GPU. Can't tell if you're budget is so broadly defined.

nvidia gtx 460 twinfrozr II

6 months ago when I was looking for cards, it was like $140 or 160. It was "last gen" 6 months ago, but an very very good card iirc.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

The 460 is a solid card all around and it's a good baseline for a card that should have enough legs to base your decision around. Looks like it's around $130 on newegg. Probably the best value for a video card atm. All the better ones are ~$180-$200+. Similarly if you prefer Radeon the 6850 matches pretty well with the 460.

One tip if you don't mind waiting is keep an eye on newegg's daily deals for a week to a month you'll usually find a great deal on a video card.
