I'm wanting to upgrade the card in this computer I'm buying and was wondering if I should stick with a Nvidia card or move over to AMD. What's your guys opinion and what card would you recommend?

The specs are:
System: AMD FX-4130 3.80GHz Quad-Core | AMD 760G Chipset | 8GB DDR3 | 1TB HDD | Genuine Windows 8.1 64-bit

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT610 1GB Video Card | 24X DVD±RW Dual-Layer Drive | Audio: 7.1 Channel | Gigabit LAN | Keyboard and Mouse

Expansion Bays/Slots Total(Free): 3(2) Ext. 5.25" | 4(3) Int. 3.5" | 4(4) Int. 2.5" | 1(1) PCI | 1(1) PCI-E x1 | 1(0) PCI-E x16 | 4(3) DIMM 240P

Power Supply: 450 Watts

And I would like to stay under 100 dollars on the card, for now at least.

HD 7770 will be the best option for the price.

There have been some sales on the 7790's which take it below $100. If you can catch one of those, by all means get one.
Otherwise the 7770 is a solid card.

Amd cards tend to offer much better performance for the money at this price point. I recommend you get a 7770 or if you can save a little more money you should go for a r7 260x. Anything under these cards is not really worth the money.

grab a amd hd 7770 they are just under 100 and will be a big step up from what you have, and match up nice with the rest of your system.
