You could also consider a 5770 for DirectX 11 support in 7. Right now its about equal to the 4850 due to early drivers, but it runs cooler on a 40nm process, as opposed to the 4850's 55nm.

700W is very nice.

Good ATI cards have already been suggested. I'm more of a Nvidia guy, so I'd chip in the GTS 250, which is around what you want to spend (a few bucks above it), and it is comparable in performance to the HD 4850 and 5750. The older 9800 GTX and GTX+ are solid choices as well and cost about the same. All of these cards, including the ATI ones cost about the same. Might be worthwhile to hunt for discount offers or otherwise good deals.

Plenty of different vendors to choose from. I tend to go with Gainward, but that is more tradition than anything else . I often stick to brands and manufacturers whose products don't give me trouble. Other examples are NEC for monitors, Hitachi for drives, Razer for mice, Logitech for keyboards, Intel for CPUs ...

A GTS250 IS a 9800GTX+.

It is a repackaged 9800GTX+, true. There's a 2 GB GTS 250 model, though it's not something I'd buy (I went with the 1 GB model). Might be easier to get a good deal for a 9800GTX+ mostly because it is "older", but I agree, it is exactly the same hardware.

The card is good for 1440x900 gaming or 1680x1050 if you choose lower settings.
