Lol 300$... That's a pretty big budget at times right now. You could wait for the 6xxx series to come out, see how that goes. (I would do that, since Nvidia will probably counter with price cuts.) But another option, is getting SLI 460s It'll run you A LITTLE over 300$, like 320$. But the performance equals that of the GTX 470 SLI or a 5970. After a tiny OC.
