    Default Best gpu that'll work with my system?

    I'm doing a low cost upgrade of a 4-y.o. pc. Recently put in a new cpu (free) and psu. It's come time to choose a video card, and I admit I'm befuddled by the cornucopia of choices. Let's say I'd like to play Crysis and have it look good on a 1680 x 1050 monitor.

    Current system:
    Athlon x2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9Ghz @ 65 watts
    Gigabyte M55sli-s4 mobo
    Nvidia 7600gs gpu
    2 x 1gb PNY DDR2 800 ram
    320gb PATA HDD
    card reader
    Corsair 400cx, 400 watts with 30A on +12V rail

    Would the Nvidia GTS 250 work with this setup powerwise? And if so, is it overkill with the other components? (Budget is not the primary concern, but I'm not trying to waste money.) How about a green 9800gt? Or a Radeon 4770? 4670? Or what? Thanks.
