It really just depends on how much you are willing to pay and what games you foresee yourself playing in the next few years.

A very solid option would be the 560Ti. A very good low power/ cheap alternative is the radeon hd 7750.

For the games you listed that is a very capable GPU. However the 7750 has superior performance at less power consumption, which could save you money over time (depending how much you use it). It could also handle newer games at 1080p a bit better than a 6670.
