XFX Radeon HD 7850 Core Edition 860MHZ 1GB 4.8GHZ GDDR DVI HDMI 2XMINIDP PCI-E Video Card
I have read that that card is a bit noisy, and its only a 1gb, but at that price I think its about as good as bang for buck is going to get without a power supply upgrade (IMO).

EDIT: That said I will put in a link for BlueByte here (you didn't even post your own sale?). He has a GTX650 Ti in the buy sell thread that is brand new in box for $100...I would consider that. Its between an hd 7770 and 7850 in performance, but would be even better on power (its cheaper and since private sale save the tax as well). Your call.

If you really want more performance then that, then the power supply should really be upgraded (as I mentioned in an earlier post).
