Best Graphics card around $100

I'm a first time computer builder thinking of making a rig, and am uncertain of what GPU I should choose. I've reviewed the Best Graphics Cards For The Money: September 2011 on tomshardware

but am still unsure.

I am planning on doing some gaming, though I'm happy playing on low specs.

The card that I'm looking at very seriously is Galaxy 60XMH6HS3HMW GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) GC 768MB

After the rebate it's $100 + $8 shipping.

Is there anything better than this for a similar price?

I probably won't SLI or Crossfire.

Not sure if I'll Overclock

My monitor is a pretty standard 19".

The computer that I'm proposing to build has

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz $105

ASRock 880GMH/U3S3 AM3+/AM3 AMD 880G $84.50

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) $52

hec Zephyr MX 750 750W $65

HEC Blitz Black Steel Edition ATX Mid Tower Computer $42

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB $55

Thanks a lot guys

P.S. If you have any thoughts about the rest of the rig, I'm happy to have any suggestions.

Thanks for the offer Hezx, but I think I'm gonna buy everything new, just to make it easy on myself.

I might be wrong about this Ringelos, but I think that the mobo you suggested only supports AM3+ CPU socket, and my CPU is only an AM3, which may cause some problems.

Aww... really was trying to get rid of it =(.

Also the mobo he sugested is a AM3+ mobo but it supports
FX / Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
