I have a AMD 9850Black Edition CPU now with 8 Gigs of ram in it. 

I have now have in it 2 4850 Video Cards Running in Crossfire.

A few of the games I  am playing now seem to get some lower FPS on them, and looking at the CPU usage I am not Maxed out on that, so I am looking to upgrade my video card. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to get a video card that is not over kill and will match my System perfectly.

Wait a few months and get a HD 8990. You'll need a new CPU as well, the current one is ancient and probably already bottlenecks your current config.

The game I am playingis Project Reality for BF2

The game plays fine I just want to increase my FPS.  My cpu is not a bottleneck at all. 

When I monitor my CPU it is not maxed out at all. I want to find the best video card I can get that will not be too much for my system.

So what do you not understand about "the rest of your system specs are needed like it says in the sticky"

I understand completely what you asked. I was able to get some grear responses and advice from another forum. Your second response is rude just so you know.

You'll need to test it with a game that is properly optimized for quad core CPUs. Problem is: none exists.
