Best budget oriented GPU for under $150

I am building a system for my grandkids and would appreciate opinions on the best budget oriented gaming card. Objective: Best GPU for under $150, with preference for under $125.

Current build specs:

Intel i3 3220 (New IB CPU)
ASRock Extreme 4 Z77 mobo
Antec Dark Fleet 35 Case
XClio 750 W PSU
GSkill Ares 1600 RAM 8 GB
Crucial C300 SSD 128 GB

PCI 3.0 would be good, but if I can't get something (PCI 2.0 or 3.0) that I think is up to specs then I'll cannibalize the dual SLI GTX 470s (in my current gamer) to use one in the new build.

  1. If you can stand to wait for a rebate, this would put you at $135 in the end:

    After the rebate, it's a good deal for a factory OC'd card made by a solid company.
  2. It's a good card at a good price, but I'd just as soon cannibalize the SLI GTX 470s to get the same (or better) performance.
  3. Best answer
    I hear you, but then you give up the SLI on your system.
