Questions about upgrading graphics card


I have a Core 2 Duo E6300 CPU running at 1.86 GHz.

I am planning on buying a 22" with a native resolution of 1680 X 1050.

I was wondering which graphics card i should buy, and wether i would get bottle-neck or not.

which graphics card do you recommend, from nvidia, around 100$+? would i get bottle neck?

and would it be compatible with my mother board? (Gigabyte GA-945P-S3)

thanks in advance!!

your motherboard will support the latest graphics cards and you should probally go with a GTS 250 from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127422

that GTS 250 is standing perfectly at 100$
