My question is if there is something cheaper in the 4000/3000 series, or something from nvidia that would be cheaper than a 5750 but have the same perfromance.
Well Newegg does have a HD4850 1GB for $84.99 shipped after rebate. It's just under the HD5750 in performance: link. The Corsair 400W is $19.99 shipped after rebate and coupon: link. So the upgrade would cost $104.98 after discounts. If you want the best price and performance that's about the best you could do.
