Without a doubt I'd go for a GTX 460 on ebay and overclock it to 850MHz and 2000MHz memory. At that speed it outperforms a stock GTX 560(non-ti). And then (if your motherboard and PSU supports it) you can buy another GTX 460 and SLI them. For $200 you can get performance greater than that of a GTX 580.

I got a gtx 460 off the toms classified ads for 80 shipped, the 1 gb 256 bit variant too, think the guy is still trying to sell the other for 75 w shipping, id jump on it!

really I think right now is a great time for someone on a small budget to buy a second-hand gpu, there are some great deals to be had out there... on toms, clist, ebay or otherwise...

otherwise your budget is not going to net you a very good (brand new) card imo

what are your full systems specs.... brand make model, and your monitors native resolution?

the 7770 would certainly be a good choice too, just not as powerful, however it will consume less power than the 460 and brand new with a warranty is never bad...

either gpu would pair well with an i3...

please list your full system specs though...

Those passmark scores are not accurate. The CPU charts are a little accurate but not the GPU scores. I have a whole lot of trouble believing that the GTX 570 is better than a GTX 690. It just simply doesn't add up. Don't get me wrong... The GTX 570 is an excellent card but it just plain sucks against the GTX 690.

5770, 6770, 7770 are cheap for their performances! Plus they don't put a lot of pressure on your PSU :)
