Looking to upgrade my GeForce GT 520; budget of $150

My graphics card is extremely out of date, but I'm not very hardware-savvy. It'll be used mostly for gaming, so what should I upgrade to with a budget of $150 (after rebate)? Here're my specs:

Model: ASUS Desktop CM6870 Series
Processor: Intel Quad Core i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10 GHz
RAM: 12.0 GB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
PSU: Not entirely sure how to check, but I found a sticker on the case that states the model and also reads "Rating: 115/220-230V~, 7/4A, 60/50Hz"

  1. AMD Radeon 7790 is a cheap option. But I would go for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. It's $165 and is a much better option than the 7790

    Well, it appears that the power supply is 350W. The geforce gtx 650ti is great bang for your buck option. You can find some that are on sale for $150 or even a little less.

    This is a great option here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839

    EDIT: There are a few other cards that retail for $130 w/out rebates. You could also try for one of those and you'll end up with a total <$150 after shipping and taxes. I just chose EVGA because it is a very reputable brand.

    Other options include:
