What Graphics Card Should i Get

I know next to nothing about graphics cards but i need one for my new build.
I want good fps on games such as bf3 ect.

I have a 160 pounds aka 248USD.
i will be running

Intel i5 2500k
Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z77-D3H
8GB Corsair Vengeance
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK Builder Series 600W Power Supply

I want to get the best possible GPU for my price.
I want it asap but if i need to hold out another-

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. If you don't mind second hand (or can find one for £150 new) and can cope with the power draw and heat, get a GTX480. On ebay you can get one for £140ish, and is quicker than a GTX570. Its so cheap it's silly. GTX470s come a bit cheaper and they're basically GTX560ti 448cores.
  2. For that much money, you can get a 7850 if you shop around, or a nice Cayman 69xx series like this:

    Both suggestions can be had with 2GB of VRAM, so you are set for high resolutions.
