Default Graphics card upgrade recommendation.

Hey guys, i made a post some time ago about a big upgrade i was goin to make, and now i need your help buying a new graphics card. I accept opinions and recommendations and that's what i'm looking for.

Motherboard: Gigabyte G3 970A DR3
Processor: Amd Fx-4100 (quad 3.6ghz)
Memory: G. skill Ripjaws 2x2gb
Graphics: Ati Radeon hd 4670 (xfx)

So i've checked some prices and the Gddr5 cards are kinda expensive and i'm not quite sure if i'm gonna need it (i only use graphics for gaming, i don't do graphic design or anything like that), so head towards better but Ddr3 cards.

I know you will be able to help me, thanks a lot

For gaming, you will absolutely want a card with GDDR5.

How much are you willing to spend?

Well, i live in Argentina (sucks how expensive technology is here)but for you to get an idea, this is one of the cheapest gddr5 i found: "Ati Radeon HD 6770 Gddr5 1gb" $184 (dollars, of course) and right now it's a little far from my reach, althou i could wait to buy it i guess but only if it's really worth it.

I would absolutely save my pennies for that card or go for something like a 7850 for a couple of bucks more.
