Recommended graphics card for my PC

Hello, my system specs are the following:

CPU: Intel® Pentium® Processor E5200
Motherboard: ASRock P45DE
RAM: 1x 2GB DDR2 KINGSTON
PSU: Corsair 400W

What video card would you recommend me?; a video card that doesn't get limited by the CPU.
Thank you.

What do you plan on using the card for?

Any video card that nears performance will need a bigger power supply....

What is your budget?

At the bottom of your post click on "My System Spec's" there is a link to fill out your system spec's:)

I am planing on using the card for gaming.
My budget is around 100$.
Corsair is a good and stable power supply, it has more than 400W.

With a PSU of only 400W I don't think you can handle a video card that is more than 512MB.

Newegg.com - XFX HD-677X-ZNLC Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Goes below budget with the rebate....if you register with XFX within 30 days you get a lifetime warranty....

However it needs 450 watts and a six pin connector, and a adapter is not included....
