Best Graphics Card Under 175$ to fit my system?

Hi guys,
I'm running
Intel Core i3 3240 3.4ghz CPU
Asus P8H61-MX R2.0 motherboard (PCI-E 3.0)
4gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz
Silverstone 500w PSU

I'm looking to play most modern games at 1080p
(I'm not stressed out about settings, medium should be fine)

Any thoughts? thanks anyway :)

    I second this.
    The R7 260X is a bit faster than the HD 7790.

    Going by these benchmarks too from anandtech
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/781?vs=776

    It is much faster than the 650ti at only $10 more.
    ONTOP of that, it comes with TWO free games!

    Yeah I was looking at this one, though what would you say about the 7790? It's about the same price..

    Haha I didn't see you posted that so don't look at what I wrote..

    Would you recommend investing about 20$ more and getting the Gigabyte GTX 660 OC?
