Default I need a new video card

My 9800 gt is showing major artifacts and I just got some grant money so I was hoping someone could help me choose a new graphics card. I need it to play Starcraft 2 RAWR! My PSU is this:
Max output:1000w
max out power:980 at AC < 100v
12v shall not exceed 950w
100-240v~/ 14A
5v & 3.3v shall not exceed 225w

I'd go ahead and get another 9800gt if you're just going to play sc2. My wife's computer can play sc2 with everything maxed with her 9800gt.

If you don't want another 9800gt I'd go with this: this

With a budget of $300 check out the GTX460 1GB. It's a bit more than the HD5770 but the GTX460's performance is equal to the HD5850, bargain i'd say.

And you'll have $70-$80 left over.
