welp, there's the 560Ti which should fit your bill just right. the 7850 does give a slightly better performance even in the Nvidia optimized games for a lower power consumption, but for a higher price.

Yeah the 7850 would be the strongest card in that budget range if you can stretch it to that, otherwise the 560ti is ok but only 1GB ram is getting low by today's standards.
