What is a good graphics card for around 100$?

I am building a computer, and need to find a graphics card. I need to stay in the 100$ range, but i will probably end up spending 120 ish, and that's within budget.
Are their any recommendations?
uses
-mid to high MC/FTB texture packs
-TF2
-Portal 1 and 2 (if i can figure them to run on Linux)
-Other games on steam

Additional info
-I'm not a graphics perfectionist, so on some of the high end games i would play i could deal with average/ recommended graphics.

  1. hd 7750 - at about $100, historically speaking that's an awful lot of gpu for the money.
    hd 7770 - seeing some downward corrections on the price bringing it down to $120... if you can find it for that, it's a great deal.
    650Ti - is running for $140, which is a nice bump in performance for the cash if you can stretch up to it.
  2. 7750 or 7770 if you can find one on sale for that price. Beware the cheap 7750's with the DDR3 and make sure it's the DDR5 version.
  3. HD 7770 or GTX 650 Ti, depending on what is on sale. The HD 7790 has been as low as $110 as well.
  4. the 7790 can be had for $135 on newegg... that's a pretty good deal; it's cheaper then a 650ti atm...
  5. I ordered the HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card today for $99 and it includes a couple games and an additional $10 MIR. If it works as advertised and reviewed, it'll be pretty tough to beat for well under $100.
  6. awesome deal

    Good deal. I paid that for my 7750 Asus OC edition about 4 months ago, but that's in Canada too where everything is more despite our money being at par.

    For casual gaming, my 7750 is fine. I can play less demanding games at high or max and newer more demanding games at medium or a custom setting, so the 7770 should be able to do better than that. I'm not the kind of person that can justify to myself 2x$500 video cards for some less jagged lines or shinier objects in a game. $100 did it for me.
