Looking for a new video card... but which?

Money isn't a problem with this, though the cheaper, the better, obviously. I want a new GPU that will last quite a while, requirement-wise. I'm upgrading from an older card (ATI Radeon x1950 Pro 512 MB) so almost anything will be better.

Let the games begin!

or if you want to spend more you can get a gtx 770 but for the increase in price the extra performance isn't really worth it.

Ok.

Now what is the rating of your current power supply? Nevermind, to be honest you will need to upgrade basically everything else or your new card will get bottleneck'd.

Well, if your system is that old you're probably better off replacing everything if you have the money for it.

You really need to give us a price range for us to make a good recommendation.

There's nothing wrong with the processor. I can add a few more gb's of RAM no problem. As for the price of the card, I don't really want to spend more than 150 but if I need to, I can.
