Nvidia GTX 750 Ti SC
or

I'd opt for the GTX 750 ti: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-750-Ti-vs-GeForce-G...
This one in particular: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it should even be faster than the comparison above.
Doesn't even need a 6/8 pin cable. 60W.

Ok i bought the 750 Ti SC 2 GB GDDR5 version, and going based off this site http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=2073&gid2=..., i should be able to run Battlefield 4, Metro: Last Light, TitanFall, Tomb Raider, and Watch Dog's on high right?

I just wanted a card that would allow me to play Ultra / High / Medium settings for the next 5 years, that was my main focus.

5 years! That's asking a lot. In case you haven't noticed, games 5 years ago didn't need anywhere near the gfx power we have in today's cards. When Crysis (1) came out in 2008/2009, there wasn't a single card that could run it at max settings. Today, the GTX 750ti can easily run it at max settings @ 1080p.
I can only guess at the advances that will be made in game design and game engine innovations that will be available in just a couple years.

Besides, you'll be itching for an upgrade in a years or so, I'll bet. ;)

Lol true, 5 years is a long time, plus im already looking into upgrading other parts like my PSU then better RAM then additional HDDs then switch from Intel i5 to an i7 etc.,

No problem. Drives, fans, LEDs, even memory require very little power from the PSU. Graphic cards and CPUs are the big draw. Even the Antec BasiQ line of PSUs are good. And the GTX 750ti is only a 60W card maxed out.
Nvidia recommends a 300W PSU min for that card. And they generally over rate because they don't know what quality PSU the end user will have.
