I just got a free comp from a friend and I'm planning to get a better gfx card for it. It has a core 2 duo e6550 @2.33ghz with 3gb of ram. I was wondering how good of a gfx card I can get before the cpu starts to bottleneck. Any insight would be helpful.

edit: Wasn't paying attention, wrong thread

Buying a GTX260 used would be a good choice, you can get them relatively inexpensively and it should play most games very well.

Not sure what resolution he's using, but I'd look at a GTX 460 768mb or 1 gb. Look around for sales, last week they sold for $145 with a free game for the 768 mb version.
