Default Best graphics card for under 180

Hi, after choosing the antec 1200 for my case ive been left with 180 to spend on a graphics card and i was wondering if people had any recomendations, my reselution is 1650X1050. it doesnt matter if its ATI of Nvidia cos ill never be able to afford another one to crossfire it. Ill be playing games like COD4 and crysis

So thats... 293 USD

Radeon HD 4870
512MB GDDR5
PCI Express 2.0 x16

Those cards are all range from 250$-300$

Best Choice!

In my opionion, I don't think SLI or crossfire really worth it anymore...

HD 4850 if you play without loads of AA/AF. HD 4870 is you like 8xAA and 16xAF.

180 euros = $230.40, according to Google.

$219 after a $30 mail-in rebate.
