What is the resolution of your monitor?
What price range do you have?
What is your PSU?

Depending on your answers, your choice may wildly vary.

You should be just fine with either of the cards i recommended earlier as They are right in your price range, perform well, and will work with your psu
personally i would go with the 560ti 448 core

the hd 560ti 448core will be an good choice because it nearly comparable in performance towards gtx 570 so it will be an good choice but if think for sli in future then not because they are limited.

I think if you want to run Aion you could save yourself some coin and go for a 6870. If you want Nvidia I will recommend a GTX 560ti or GTX 570 there is no point for the 448 thing when a 560ti will overclock to about the speed of a GTX 570 and if you need more power just get a GTX 570 and OC it which leaves no room or purpose for a 448 core because the pricing on it is all wrong.

FYI, good luck if you try to sli nvidia gpu's. I had major problems with that board and sli gtx 460's. Apparently, the realtek lan drivers conflicted with the video drivers causing the video to completely freeze as soon as I enabled sli. I ended up having to buy a usb network adapter and disabling the onboard lan. I tried 4 different nvidia drivers, a bios flash, lan drivers from realtek and none of that helped. I RMA'd the motherboard and then sold the system with one of the 460's. The kid I sold it to sent me an email about a month ago saying he is having the same problem after buying another 460. I felt bad so I gave him the network adapter but he still spent 4days cursing me before he emailed to ask what the issue might be. I let Gigabyte know that sli was a problem when I RMA'd it. Guess they couldn't fix the issue. Hopefully, it was just an isolated incident but it is something to keep in mind.

I can run 2 GTX 560 ti's in SLI. But after reading the experience this albro guy had i wouldn't risk spending money to SLI seeing how it obviously doesnt SLI well even after a RMA. Try a 6950. or Crossfire 6870's (XFX) or Saphire

SLI did work for me but it was at the expense of the onboard lan. It could have just been the gtx 460 cyclones 1GB that were the problem, I don't know. Don't avoid nvidia based on what I said, just keep it in mind if you decide to sli in case you run into problems.

the pricing on the 448 is perfect being right with the performance of a 570 out of the box and 50 bux cheaper......
