You would do really good with a HD 5850. Yes its ATI. Nvidia's current cards are an epic ripoff when you consider that ATI has a card in every price range and they almost all outperform Nvidia's, and ATI's new cards (including the 5850) have DirectX11 and Eyefinity support.
You will not need anything more than a 5850 unless you have an eyefinity setup.
This card is pretty weak for high-end gaming. Get a better one if you want to max games.
Like usual, what foothead said
Being an Nvidia fanboy (or any other form of a fanboy) will lead you to making bad decisions. You can get an Nvidia card (GTX280), but it won't perform as good, and doesn't have DX11 or EyeFinity. Also, it has more power consumption, and is a bigger card, with less output ports.
