OK guys my rig has a Phenom II 955 OC'd to 3.8, 8 gigs of ddr3 1600, and I have been running a GTS 250 GPU and I want to get a new one. She has been running flawlessly for 2.5 years and still has another year or 2 before I start a new build, so my question is what would be the best GPU I could get that would not bottleneck anything?? I was thinking a 560 ti but some input is a must before purchasing. Thanks...oh and my PS is a Coolermaster 750 GX.

That question depends on what games you play and at what level do you want the eye candy.

I mostly play Guild Wars 2, WoW, and Star Trek online. I would like to run all on Ultra if possible......

Do you have a budget and what resolution do play at?

Those are fairly midrange games, note, Star Trek Online has a hard time with AMD cards of late. I learned this first hand, luckily I'm level 50 and don't really need to do much, but if I go to a planet and linger in a system without beaming down, the computer slows to a crawl, also anti-aliasing causes graphical errors on Radeon 7000 cards plus there is a little background graphical flickering with nebulae. It's not a big deal depending on how you play.

At the higher end of what you need, I would get Galaxy 66NPH7DV6XXZ GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB. Next would be the XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNFC Radeon HD 7850 1GB then the XFX CORE Edition FX-777A-ZNF4 Radeon HD 7770.

I got a GTX 480 from Newegg for 179 and it ROCKS. Every game on Ultra !! Bump on the fan to 70% and its stays fairly cool. Free game was cool too......
