SOURCE: (suggestions for video card upgrade on Gateway DX4870-UB318)

I know a Asus 7770 2GB works great with this pc. For some reason I couldn't get a Nvdia GTX 650 Ti to work on this computer. I would plug it in I wouldn't get anything on my television or audio. I recomend you purchasing the Asus 7770 2GB because I have it and I can play all my games on Ultra settings including Battle Field 3. Of course you would have to upgrade your power supply to at least 500 watts. Hope this helps, if anyone can solve my 650 Ti issue it would be a big help. Thanks guys I hope you have a great day!
