Need a good graphics card for Borderlands 2.

My current video card is a Radeon HD 3850, and for a game like Borderlands 2, it doesn't do it justice. I've gotten constant crashes from several game sessions and it's not good enough to run the game without any interruption, let alone at 30 fps.

I want to know which video card can run Borderlands 2 on max settings with PhysX and no interruptions. Also, I would like that same card to at least handle a game like Battlefield 3 and Metro 2033 as well.

You probably don't want to go below a ~$300 GTX 660 Ti, but if you can get a GTX 670, that's the best video card value right now. It particularly does well in BF3, and if you are looking forward to Metro: Last Light, that game will also feature enhanced PhysX effects.

What's your budget and where do you like to shop?

I have a Z77 mobo with Intel i5 3570 I believe. It's a fairly recent build so I shouldn't have any problems with any bottlenecking.

My budget for a new video card is around $250, but I don't mind going the extra mile and spending a little more, just as long as it's a better value.

Go the extra mile for a GTX 670, you won't regret it. Will play almost every game at 60fps at 1080p.

This is the cheapest GTX 660 Ti on Newegg right now, Gigabyte Windforce for $280 after rebate. All the others are $299.

For the GTX 670, again Newegg has the Gigabyte Windforce for $380 after rebate, which is the cheapest one with custom cooling.
