Default GPU for play BFBC2

I'm looking for the cheapest GPU that can run well BFBC2 on 1680 x 1050 22" monitor, keep in mind it's for a 3 gaming PC, when I have a visitor and he want to join US, I already have 2 others builds with a 580 and a 480

my i5 760 machine with 8 gb of ram and a single 460GTX 1GB at the time could run the game on max graphics no problem, assuming you have an equal cpu or so just gt a single 460GTX 1GB they're cheap and good

BFBC2 plays better on Nvidia hardware FYI. I'd suggest a GTX 560Ti, which plays BFBC2 better than the HD 6950 and HD 6970, and once overclocked beats the HD 6970 in a number of other titles. The price of that HD 6950 is quite nice, though.

This.

I have a 560 to play BFBC2 on a 1680X1050 at max settings. No issues.
