    I would like to get a new ATI video card but I am not sure what my system can handle. Does anyone have any idea what I should get that will not bottleneck? I game on a 19" monitor @1440x900. I would like to spend under $200.

    honestly for 900p just take a 1g 7850 and it will max the hell out of any thing.

    agreed, the 7850 should handle 900p without issue.

    The 7850 is the one. It will be a nice upgrade for that system

    Problem is that the cheapest one on newegg is a powercolor one for 169,while the 7870 crap daddy posted is 209,so thats only 40$ while being way better....

    I had an HD 7870 that I sold for $200 a little back to prepare for next gen, but saw an HD 7850 2GB for $150 with Far Cry 3. They will both max anything at that resolution...in fact I ran the same resolution previously with dual HD 5770s which was also enough.
