Upgrading old GTS 250. Any recommendations?

I've been using my GTS 250 for years now and it still serves me well. I manage to run games on medium downsampled to 1080p, however I'd like a little more than that. I want to be able to run games on high (or maybe ultra) on at least 1080p. I've been out of touch with new hardware for quite some time and I really have no idea what would be a decent card.

My budget is around $200, however less would be nice. I found a GTX 570 1280MB DDR5 for $170, but I'm not sure if this would be enough or more than I need.

My PSU has a Maximum output of 780W.


Thanks! :)

    Thanks! How does the 660 compare to the 570? Is it worth the extra $45 (I've never gotten a rebate in my life lol)?

    See here for performance difference : http://tpucdn.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_660_Direct_Cu_II/images/perfrel_1920.gif

    In my opinion the 660 is worth the extra, you get better performance, more vram, some features that only the 600 series got, and lower power consumption.
    The rebates, i don't know if it is reliable or not.
