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?

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

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

if you insist on a nvidia you are looking for a 460gtx unless pricing has changed in the USA.

MSI N460GTX Hawk GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 = 159 USD

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
