  1. Shoot for a Nvidia 460 gtx or AMD 6850 if possible even a stock 460/6850 will show a lot of frames over the gainward card you are looking at if you find nothing better than what I provided above then maybe the card you wanted will not be so bad.
  2. Hmm, GTX560 Ti is out of your budget, if you could stretch more then take this:

    GigaByte GTX 560 OC 1GB

    or something on your budget:

    EVGA GTX 550 Ti SuperClocked 1GB
  3. I like this for under 130 your local cash money

    Awesome card to overclock and comes with a free game.
    Really as far as I can see this is the best card for the money on that site.
    I'm not downplaying your original choice, it was a good card but the card above can be expected to be almost 1.5 times as fast

    or if you insist on nvidia

    Nothing wrong with this choice either on your budget
