Nvidia: GeForce 560 ti
AMD: Radeon HD 7790

The 560 ti is a bit stronger but get whatever is closest to your budget.

I'm all for this if you can find it for 130. Do you have a link?

If that was a 7850 for $130 then damn I wish I would have seen it when it was still there. Oh well I ended up ordering a 7790. I'm kind of pissed at myself though because I based it on passmark's site and have come to find out passmark is a BS benchmark, and the 7790's actual performance is no where near what passmark's site claims (claims about 4x or better improvement over my buddy's old 8800 GT where it's only about 2-3x in reality).

Should have waited for another 7850 sale. These things get down to 120-130 really often.
