  1. I own the gtx 560ti and it's great actually. you can pick up a cheap one on ebay for about $180.

    if you look here it's also tom's recommendation for the $230 spot

  2. I have a 6870 and it runs pretty well. (it plays skyrim on ultra) It is also cheaper than the gtx 560ti so you probably get more bang for your buck. However, since your budget is $250 you might as well go ahead with the gtx 560ti

    Here is a benchmark of the Radeon 6870 and the nvidia GTX 560Ti

  3. Either GTX 480 or the 7850. The GTX 480 will perform very well with overclocks. But the 7850 is a lot cooler and more power efficient but costs slightly more.

    If you can squeeze out an extra $10-$20, you can get a GTX570, which will beat them all.
