For now, a Radeon 5770 is probably the highest you could go. However, if you just a few more days until Black Friday, I would guess there are going to be some pretty sick deals.
Here's the cheapest 5770 on newegg

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Radeon 5770 ~$100
Newegg is having an early Black Friday sale today, so there is a 10% discount on several brands, including HIS, the maker of the above card. That means it's only about $100 after rebate and code BFDESKVGA

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GTX 460 768mb ~$120
If you want to get a GTX 460 768mb, this is a card on newegg right now for about $120 after rebate and the 10% discount.

what features are you looking for from the card? DX11? Multi monitor support? Crossfire/SLI capabilities? if you can give us a better idea of what you want from your card, we can give you better suggestions.

also, theres are you talking about price after MIR or before? If you're willing to take MIRs into consideration, you can get a much better card and still stay within your budget

you shouldn't count on MIRs, Newegg is usually pretty good.... but....

Also the 768MB model of 460s isn't the best....

yeah... but the 5770 doesn't fit in his budget, so I was saying an alternative...

GTS 450 isn't as good as the 5770... let alone a 5750

they had a million reviews saying 5770 > GTS 450.....

Edit: none of them mentioned WOW....

I forgot if we are including the price after rebate or not. I think, once you factor in tax and shipping, if $120 is the absolute limit, then the 5770 is out of range. The cheapest 5770 on Newegg is the HIS 5770 for $140, but $110 after rebate.

The next best card is the GTS450, which is a little cheaper. The cheapest GTS450 on Newegg is the ECS GTS450 for $115, but $95 after rebate (+$7 shipping) + a free copy of HAWX 2.

The EVGA GTS450 is $130, but $100 after rebate (+$4 shipping) + a free copy of HAWX 2.
