As the topic says, My GTX 650 ti died after only 30 days. So They are giving me a refund. What would be an great card to replace it with? My budget it would be about $160 or so shipped. So I am looking for something would be worth it.

Here is my current rig.
ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Motherboard
AMD-FX 8320 OC to 4GHZ
Kingston Technology HyperX 8 GB (2x4 GB Modules) 1600 MHz DDR3
EVGA 600 B 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified 600W Active

Best solution

You could get a 750 ti for around that price.

Well, he is getting a refund.
This doesn't mean he has to buy it off Newegg again, but ASUS and EVGA are both reputable brands.
I personally like the EVGA one better, but that is just off warranty and the fact that I bought the OC'd edition.

Not to say though, that ASUS warranty is great and their products are solid too.
It's just the price which I would save on, they are basically the same.

But I have also read a GTX 660 would be a better value, If even that was 20 bucks or so over budget. Is that a true statement? At this point if I have to go over that's fine. But I would like something to at least last to the end of the year or a little further.I am looking for something that can do Battlefield 4 and Crysis 3 at a decent fps and as close to 1080p as possible.

a gtx660 is better than the gtx750ti. if you want the gtx660 why not? it should play 1080p in some decent frames around 40+fps :) .
