what kind of computer do you have? is it PCIE or AGP?

PCIE I would suggest a 7900GT for around 250-280 USD

AGP I would say the 7800GS 270-299 USD

Both can be found at Newegg


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
