I did upgrade my PC to AMD FX6100, but retained my old Graphics card (Radeon HD 5450) which is not up to the mark. Processing is been cool, but some part I miss the quality and speed because of Graphics card. I work on lot of applications like RealFlow, 3Ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, etc. so I need a good choice for Graphics card. Which is the best suited for my requirement? ***The limit I'm have is $185***

I would get a GTX 660ti. Those programs favor CUDA cores better than stream processors(radeon)

aredflyingbird is right in that the programs favor CUDA cores better than stream processors. however Nvidia has been seriously nerfing CUDA performance in recent generations.

I would scour the internets for a gtx 570 if you can find one within your price range. otherwise, shoot for a radeon 7850. Nvidia has more or less given up on supporting content creation in their most recent cards (the TITAN is an exception but that thing cost $1k per pop)

Yes, many 3D modeling and rendering programs are optimized for Nvidia. Aside from that, there's two ways you can go, you can get a desktop class card like the GTX 580, or get a workstation card. The advantage of workstation class cards is that the drivers area bit better than the desktop card drivers and are especially optimized for 3D modeling and other workstation tasks. Unfortunately workstation graphics cards can be significantly expensive then 570's, 580's etc...
