I was pretty much in the same boat as you. I was looking for an upgrade from my 8800GT and ended up getting the MSI 465 Golden Edition with the bios hack to get it to a 470. Although I haven't used it just yet, on paper it was a pretty good choice. I'm sure people here will make some good recommendations but I wouldn't doubt if they go with a 6850 or a 460. Newer may be better if you are concerned with power consumption.
