I have a HP Pavilion Elite HPE-575a desktop computer with an AMD Radeon HD 6570 graphics card installed. I would like to upgrade to a newer, faster graphics card and am wondering which AMD card to upgrade to? I am wanting to play the newer games and the current card has some lag.

I have a Core i7 2600 processor running W7 64bit and 8GB RAM. The current Radeon card is a 2GB card.

Does anyone have a suggestion on which would be the best card to upgrade to?

Thanks

Harry

With a 300w power supply I wouldn't recommend any card. However, if you do upgrade that PSU to something a bit beefier (I would recommend a 650w SeaSonic or Enermax unit, or brands they make for, which are Corsair, XFX, Sapphire, and PC P&C), then the sky's the limit. Questions:

1) What's your budget
2) What's your monitor's resolution
3) What games

Thanks for the reply. In answer to your questions:

1) - up to $300

2) - Monitor resolution is 1920x1080

3) - Looking to play the new upcoming Batman Arkham Night, Crysis3 and GTA5

Well then , it seems like you are actually getting serious about gaming. A an I7 2600 is a nice CPU. 

With that in mind If we say 300$ total, then I would go with something like this 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014 (XFX unit made by seasonic who happens to make corsairs as well and a few others ) and

attach it to something like this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202099&cm_re=Radeon_R9_280-_-14-202-099-_-Product

Now if you are gonna be extreme and think of the power supply as a *need* (because it is the single most important component when building a gaming PC ) 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202046&cm_re=Radeon_R9_280X-_-14-202-046-_-Product 

Would be my next recommendation. 

As BZ said, Corsair , enermax, PC power and cooling , XFX , Seasonic are all fanstic PSU manufacturers.

I would say to spend the extra bit of money on the 280x as well, at 1920x1080 it has a measurable performance difference:
