More about what card
  1. I updated this, to the format you prefer when asking for help.
  2. If you want CUDA, then of course Nvidia is the one you need. In that price range, you could go for an upper tier GTX460 1gb. I recommend the MSI Hawk Talon Attack edition, the Gigabyte Superoverclock, or the ECS Black.

    For a little more, you can bump up the CUDA processing power and stay within your price range with a GTX470. Again, I would recommend the MSI or Gigabyte with custom cooling. EVGA or Asus are also solid choices.
