  1. Best answer
    EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

  2. For 280 usd, the best you can get right now is the Nvidia Geforce GTX 760. Here's the model that I'd recommend you http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DBPKEOI/?tag=pcpapi-20.
    But for 330 usd, which is not too too far from your budget, you could step up and get the Nvidia Geforce GTX 770, which is about 25% faster. Here would be the one that I'd recommend you if you choose to get this. http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=84048&vpn=GV-N770OC-2GD&manufacture=Gigabyte&promoid=1217

    Now it's all about how much you want to spend.
  3. Compared to the GTX 650, the GTX 760 is about 50% faster.
  4. wow, are there any suggestions for radeon?
  5. What kind of power supply do you have? The GTX 760 and the GTX 770 need more electricity than the GTX 650. Hopefully you won't need a PSU upgrade, but let's make sure.
  6. how about for 240 usd? what can i get

  9. Well the GTX 760 that I did suggest was actually 240 usd. There's just not much that's really interesting between the 760 and the 770, and AMD is pretty much out, at this price point. They got some great deals, on some other price points, but just not there. Last summer they had great deals on the 7950s, but now it's all gone, so your only good choices are on Nvidia, really.
  10. Your PSU has two rails of 24A each, but they refuse to disclose how much they can deliver at the same time. It's good enough for the GTX 760, but I'm not sure about the GTX 770. It may work, but it's very close to the limit.
  11. How about the r9 270? Is it good?
