I want to know what would be an ideal card for this build to get around 60 FPS at 1600x900 resolution?

430W PSU (upgradable if neccisary)
4GB 1866 DDR3
GPU: Thinking 650 ti or R7 260x based on research although open to all others!

What brand/model PSU is that 430W? That might cause you issues getting a decent GPU. However, if you need to include that into your $200 budget you might create a conundrum because then you are getting a lesser GPU just to get a better PSU that you no longer need for the lesser GPU.

Ideally, I'd get a decent PSU and throw in a $250 GTX760 and love the crap out of your system.

You may consider watching your RAM usage and make sure you aren't capping out that 4GB. You might be ok if you keep background apps to a minimum, but just something to watch.

Under 200 I like the 750 ti. I picked one up myself and play at 1440x900 so almost what you will be playing at. I can run bf4 at about 50ish fps on high so I'm pretty happy with that and my cpu isn't quite as powerful as yours is (Athlon x4 760k). Ideally I was bump the psu to 500 watts and get a $190 660 on Amazon. But if that's too much I recommend the 750 ti from my own experience.
