GPU Suggestions

Current setup:

AMD Phenom II X6

GIGABYTE GA-M68MT-S2 nForce 630a Motherboard

8GB RAM

500GB SATA-3 HD

Dual Boot Windows 7 Ultimate & Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

 

I'm not a hardcore gamer, as I have a PS3, but I would like to play a few games since I think I have a decent rig. A few games I'd want to play are: Alan Wake, Star Wars: Old Republic, Fallout: New Vegas, Diablo 3

 

As of now the onboard GPU sucks. I want to go with an AMD/ATI GPU since I use Ubuntu as my main OS. Any suggestions, I don't want to spend more than $150

Your CPU is awesome and should handle any 6 series GPU well, you could Get an HD 6770 For about a hundred bucks now. Though you could opt for any of the 7 series if you have the money.

 

EDIT: Get a 7770 if you can afford the extra $30, It's much faster than its predecessor:)

That's odd, the 7770 is what I was looking at right now. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2048679&Sku=M452-7770
