Honestly, if you're playing 1920X1200 anything north of a HD5850/GTX470 is gonna get the job done. I've got friends that use a 460 too if you don't want eye candy...so really take your pick.

Toms hardware does a monthly "best card for the money" article, worth checking out. Plus the GTX 560 just came out at about 250+ tax, that looks like a winner.

GTX 560, or 6950 (1GB or 2GB) would be fine but the 6950 is the faster one.
