Default New Graphics Card?

I'm definitely thinking about buying a new graphics card to replace stupid integrated graphics card (Radeon HD 3200) and I was wondering what i should get. preferably something that has no problem running any game on high for amazing fps :P

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 <_<
MoBo:ASUS M4A78 PRO!
CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9750 2.4 ghz
RAM: 4 gigs
PSU:400-450

The 4770, 4850, and 4870 all require 450W.

What's your budget? $50 will buy you a BFG 550W or a OCZ 500W PSU, plus the cost for the card ($100-$150).

+2. Very nice combo.

OCZ 750 and a Sapphire 5770. Too bad it's not an XFX.

If you're willing to spend 250, you can get this: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

The 4890 is better than the 5770. It just depends if you want to spend the extra money or not.
