at this price point all nvidia GPU's are crap and GTX 660 is probably around 150$. for 110$ you can find Radeon HD 7770. infact here is one

Asus Radeon HD 7770 1GB

EDIT: i also found a HD 7850 equivalant of a GTX 650ti boost for 130$ seemd like a good deal if your interested,

Asus Radeon HD 7850 1GB

Currently the best nVidia card for less than $110 is a GTX 650 1GB.

The absolute cheapest one is made by PNY for $90 after $20 rebate + free shipping. However, reviews are only average; 3 eggs.

The next cheapest is the following EVGA for $100 after a $20 rebate + free shipping. It has a lot of really good reviews; 5 eggs.

Last is the following Galaxy for $100 after $20 rebate + $3 shipping. Good reviews, but there are only 11 reviews.

Finally, if you do not want to bother with rebates to get the price to $110 or less, then there's the following GT 650 from Zotac. $110 + free shipping. But it has only 2 reviews, but both are 5 eggs.

In terms of performance, the GTX 650 is a little more powerful than the Radeon HD 7750. However, the Radeon HD 7770 is more powerful than the GTX 650. Since the performance is higher and the price is lower, that makes the Radeon HD 7770 a better bang for the buck.

At the moment the following MSI is the least expensive HD 7770 DDR5 graphics card after rebate; $80 + free shipping.

AMD will be releasing the Radeon HD 9000 series soon; expected but not confirmed in mid-October. The rebates are meant to clear inventory space to make room for the next gen Radeons. Note: The Radeon HD 8000 series is only sold to system builders like HP and Dell and they are simply the Radeon HD 7000 series with a new name.

Apparently, I need to make yet another post. The absolute most powerful graphics card you can buy for $110 or less is the Radeon HD 7790.

Power Color $100 after rebate + $5 shipping.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I prefer the following XFX for $105 after rebate + $4 shipping.

Note: For the Radeon HD 7770 and 7790 you will need at least a 350w power supply. The Radeon HD 7750 and GTX 650 can both run on a 300w. However, if you have an AMD CPU, then it's best to add 100w to the PSU because AMD CPUs generally consume a lot more power than Intel CPUs.

Click below for a review a review of the Radeon HD 7790. Since is more powerful than the GTX 650 and Radeon HD 7750 the benchmarks for those cards are not in the review. The Radeon HD 7770 is and so is the GTX 650 Ti. The test rig has an Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.6 GHz so if you do not have that, then the benchmarks would be lower.

Here is a relative performance chart from the review which includes all the GPUs I have mentioned. Do not mistake the GTX 650 Ti results for the lower performing GTX 650. The blue bar is a stock speed Radeon HD 7790.

One should upgrade a graphics card a number of tiers or be subject to disappointment.
If GTX660 is an option for you get it.

You may need a stronger psu; a GTX660 needs 450W or so. If you need to buy a psu, I would look for something in the 620W range
