For $125 you should be looking at GTS250, HD4850 and HD5750.

i just read that the HD 5750 DirectX Compliance: 11.0 and the gts 250 is 10.0 is that true? if it is .. then i would be thinking of only the HD 5750 am i right?

HD5750 is the only DX11 card I listed (newest generation). It will be hard to find it at a store though for $125, just saw one at bestbuy for $169. Online they are cheaper

I believe DX11 has a bit of a performance hit compared to DX10. So if you play a game that supports DX11, then it will probably look better than playing it in DX10 mode, but you will take a little performance hit.
