What sort of budget have you?

What Wattage power supply (PSU) have you? You will find that out from a sticker on the PSU.

What processor (CPU) have you?

What is your current graphics card? (GPU.

Or it might be simpler to post make and model of your PC.

And most important budget????.

If you can afford it then a GTX670 or perhaps the GTX660 which is a little cheaper. or from the AMD side perhaps a 7870 or 7850 but it really depends on how much you want to spend.

Perhaps but I believe in getting the best you can afford + anyone of these has a decent lifespan.

I agree with Chronos , get the best you can afford ! But do remember , no point in having a great graphics card if your monitor is pants . as a rough guide , I would spend about the same on the monitor as I would on the Graphics .
