Default Whats a nice video card upgrade for a gaming build

i have a radeon 5770 1gb gddr5, and am looking to upgrade my main system, it has an amd 6100 proc, 16gigs ddr3 ram. Just wondering what's a good upgrade to this around 150.00? Thanks!

What is your PSU? I'm assuming it'll be something at least decent so if it is and all money can go for the GPU then I would suggest pushing the budget a tad and getting the 7850. If not then the 7770 is pretty much your best bet vs the 650ti.

If you can I would get a GTX 660 or 660ti. If not then for your budget honestly the 7850 is your best bet. Your PSU should handle them all.
