Recommendations for NVIDIA GTX card for ~$150?

So far I have decided on the following for my new system:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

I going to put a fermi nvidia card in this system, possibly one of the GTX, but I have no experience with these cards, wrt reputable mfg, good performance value etc.. What would some of you recommend for ~$150 USD, give or take?

  1. according to your budget there is no gtx available at the moment if you can increase $50 you should be able to get gtx 460 or 480
  2. Sorry to say this but the best card at around that price range is the 6870. Don't be a dedicated fan no one gets discounts. We all pay the same price in the end
  3. if you insist on a nvidia you are looking for a 460gtx unless pricing has changed in the USA.
  4. NVIDIA/Fermi is a requirement. this machine is going to be used to supplement my paying opengl/cuda job.

    I have one, it overclocks very easily to Nvidia GTX 560 reference clocks (810/2002) and further


    I think the best 460 are (imo) MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte and Asus - not necessarily in any order
