I would say a 4870 or a 5770. The 5770 is DX.11, but the 4870 is slightly better in performance. I would choose the 5770. I would also recommend the 1GB over the 512MB if you can afford it. :toast:

Well, what with all the 5770 recommends, I'll have to chip in to and say get a 5770 too. And if you don't want one of them, then a 5770 makes a great alternative! :laugh:

That 250 would be a good card for you. Its got a bit more power behind it over your GSO. Good price also. Never bought an "open box" gfx, Ive bought motherboards and other things without a problem. :toast:
