I have recently purchased my pc. I have 3 gigs of ddr 3 ram and this mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131406

I need a graphics card that will work with the mobo. From newegg, can anyone tell me what graphics card would be best. For games like diablo 3 etc
I have $170 I want to spend around for the graphics card.

For $170 you could get a 6850.

The 6850 is a great mid-level card, but, I doubt your case would hold a 6950 or better.

will that 6850 fit in the case and the 6850 should allow me to play on high settings and it will work in unison with the on board chipset?

Yes that 6850 will fit and it should allow you to play high settings. The onboard graphics usually automatically disable itself.

You will be able to play on high settings, but with upcoming games, that is uncertain depending on what you want to set on "high". Hybrid Crossfire can work, but with very limited chipsets and much lower-end graphics cards.
