Pretty sure a GTX 660 2GB is a nice buy for around that price. But If you have another $50~$60 the new 700 series are around that range. You can give those a shot too. I haven't really seen too many reviews about the 700 series but I haven't looked around too much.

I would recommend downgrading your PS unless you plan on beefier graphics in the future. A $200 graphics card isn't enough to stress a 750W PSU, definitely overkill. I would recommend a GTX 760 @ $250 and put your PSU at a CX500-600 level.

if you can squeeze out just 50 more dollars you can get the gtx 760 which is an awesome card and 250 is a good price for it. but if you go with the gtx 660 thats not a bad card either

Like the comments above i would rather spend the extra 50 and get the 760 more bang for the buck within your budget even tho its a bit more. Just the gtx 660 i would have buyers remorse just thinking about it

Spend $50 more and buy a 760, which is absolutely worth it.

You don't need that much PSU - something like this 620w seasonic is still plenty more than you need.

The rule of thumb is that you should spend twice on your graphics card what you do on your processor. Consider buying a cheaper, non-overclockable i5 and getting more graphics muscle.
