What is your power supply brand/model?

You could probably get a Radeon 6770

Yes, that PSU can handle any card in that price range.

I suggest:
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1452-TR GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) Superclocked 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

try lower end Radeon 6000 series, thats you're only other option.... unless youwant to buy older video cards such as the ATI Radeon 5770.

i'd settle for the 6770. even though its a rebadge of the 5770, you have more updated hardware like HDMI 1.4 and only a few bucks extra.

If you look at the 2nd link in my previous post, you will find my other recommendation, a Sapphire 6770.
