Looking to spend...I dunno...around a hundred bucks? little more or a little less if the performance per dollar is there.
I guess at $100 you could look around for a radeon 6770. Rebates, if they show up, might knock it down to $90, based on what I'm seeing on Newegg. I would probably spend a little more and get the 6850, or the 6870 if you can swing it.
If you want nvidia, the 192 bit version of the 460 is 140 with rebate taking it down to $100. I don't know if it comes recommended.
