Best graphics card for money

Been thinking of getting a new graphics card and not sure what to go with currently. My budget would be under $300 or maybe a little more. I currently have a EVGA Nvidia Geforce 550 ti. I like nvidia more than radeon. Wanting to get a single graphics card because of current mobo only has one PCI express 3.0 slot. Would love to move to a mobo that I can SLI but dont have budget currently for that. Any ideas for a powerhouse graphics card that isn't too expensive but will last a while.

  1. Also would like a card with more Vram in it like 2GB if it matters at all or not. Forgot to post.

    USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and only gaming basically
    CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Mk Silencer 750w
    OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU - Intel core i5 2500 3.3ghz ~ 3.8ghz (currently clocked to 3.5ghz), RAM - 2 x (4GB), Mobo - MSI Z77 G something (cheaper one which only has 1 PCI express 3.0, 1 PCI express 2.0 version)
    OVERCLOCKING: Maybe
    MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440 x 990
  2. Here I will give you a lot of info and you can make up your mind. I would say get a 670 but it is $100.00 over your budget. But to be with in your budget the 570 is the best choice.

    If you could save up a little more I would say go for the 670 or you could wait for the 660 ti's to come out. There price range will be around $300.00 to $350.00 and they should be out in July or Augest but don't quote me on that. It is just hear say and good luck on your choices.

  3. Wait for the gtx 660 in the next month or 2. its most likely hitting the 300$ point anyways since the gtx 570 is settling down to 270$ from its previous 300$ mark.
