If you want as good gpu for 300$ you have to go for the gtx 760. At the time of writing this answer it lays at 250$. But if you want to go any higher than the 760 you will have to upgrade your cpu and motherboard. Because if you get a higher end gpu it will get bottle necked.
But what i would do to get a more stable rig, i would go for the new gtx 750ti. It will offer good performance for the money. And the price is 150$.
But either way here are links to both cards.
