I was ready to purchase a Video Card today but the price jumped up $90. Was ordering EVGA GTX GeForce 480 but the price jumped back up to $299.99.
We can't give you anything without a set budget. With no cap, we can just recommend better and better video cards until you've got multiple $1000 690s. I can tell you that the 480's a bad idea, as it's hot, loud and power-hungry, and that you should probably go for something from the latest generations (7000 and 600) instead, but without a budget I can't be more specific than that.
Sorry, I really just want best bang for my buck. The 480 at $209 seemed to be a steal. I really am not strapped for cash so I don't want to put down a budget.
I wanted to try to stay with Nvidia and I was really looking around $200-$300. The games I play won't tax any of these GPUs but I want to future proof it a bit.
