My System Specs

Default

I'm not sure on length, as I'm more likely to stick with nvidia (and therefore don't pay too much attention to ATI), but if you are looking at ATI, I'd stick with the 68xx series as they still have the traditional role of being more power-efficient and run cooler than their nvidia counterparts (and you said that was important). I usually will not suggest ATI unless you play 2560x1600 or the price warrants the suggestion, but if I were to suggest ATI, that would be my suggestion.

The GTX 460 1GB is a great option, or you can see how well the 756MB in SLI works if you nab it at $130 each (or less). I would never suggest a single 756MB card for medium-high level graphics, but maybe in SLI they are worth it?
