Default need gpu suggestions

i bought a 25" 1920x1200 monitor and i'm wondering what video card i would need to run games at medium to high settings
i'm currently running a 16" crappy monitor with 4650's in xfire,i play tf2, css , mw2 ,l4d2 global agenda and so on.
amd 940 @3.1,ddr3 ram 3gb @1333mhz

xfx for warrenty, anyone else if you care about price. try to score a used 5770 around 120, gtx 260 same or lower, 4870 even lower.


edit. i reread your first post. dont buy anything, keep your gtx 260 for now or sell it and your cards and buy a 5850
