What's your budget?

Any brand preference (AMD or NVIDIA)?

What resolution are you playing at?

Where are you buying from?

A Geforce 4800 GT Ti will max out dod, Unreal tournament, starcraft etc.. might have problems with BF3 though..

Really need more info, such as your current hardware, your resolution and the other large limiting factor budget (and location your buying from)

If on a 1920x1080 resolution, I wouldn't go lower than a GTX 560Ti.. but then I like to crank up most the settings..

Yeah we need more info. Those plus: what resolution is your monitor? What games do your play? What is the rest of your computer (processor, power supply, ram)?

Yeah really the 560ti really is the optimal "bang for buck" Card running 1080......for uber crazy poop run 560ti SLi.....fantastic Cards really.

Given you are not a hardcore games and you are at 1920x1080 I would say GTX 560 if you want to save a few bucks or spend a few extra dollars on a 560Ti if you want a bit more powerful card.
