Hey i'm looking to buy a new graphics card and i don't want to spend over $300.
Here are my specs:
BitFenix Prodigy White Case
Asrock B85M-ITX MoBo
Corsair CX600W PSU
Intel Core i5 4570
4gb of Kingston Value Ram
250 GB Segate Barracuda
1Tb Seagate Harddrive
What is the best graphics card that is within my price range?
I am also living in Australia so i don't want any USA sites.
Thankyou and Peace out

You can get only R9 270X in your price range.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Total: $268.00
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

But if you go 10$ more from 300$ you can get GTX-760 but it's not worth the money :)

GTX 760 is preferred because it has got Physx.

I think you should go with Ahmadjon's suggestion,
Asus 29 270x has good base clock speed and good cooper cooling,
It also supports Mantle , you will get 60+ fps in games like thief, battlefield etc., in Ultra or high.
if your thinking about Physx, It supports physx, not as Nividia cards does. But you can install Physx drivers from Nividia drivers site and physx will work .
If you have any dough search "R9 270x Physx" in youtube for physx in R9 270x gameplay..
So, go with Asus 29 270x it is bang for the buck

You might try popping over to the Australian Newegg site, they're showing several GTX760 cards well under your $300 (Aus) budget.
Oddly enough the R9 280 seems to be more expensive, although a few are available, right on the $300 price point.
PhysX is overrated IMHO and can severely hammer the frame rate when enabled, even on Nvidia cards.
