Go 270 or 265. Those are the better performers

rosewill is one of the better brands, you should be ok with the r9 270 as long as your psu has the 6 pin outlet for it. if not the 750 ti is the best available for you.

If your power supply has at least one 6 pin PCIe cable (pictured here http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/pcie6index.jpg)

Then get this card:

MSI AMD Radeon HD R9 270:
$139.20 (after 6% off w/ promo code and $30 rebate)
["Free Gift: GIFT AMD SILVER 2 GAMES 2014 Value:$100.00." Which means you get to pick two games from the Silver list for free: http://sites.amd.com/us/promo/never-settle/Pages/nsreloadedforever.aspx (scroll down a tiny bit until you see the games and then click the right arrow once to get to the silver list)]

If not then get this card:

Those are some great prices thanks a lot.

Yes, my psu has a 6 pin since that is what my current gpu uses for power.

You're welcome. And yes since you've got a 6 pin PCIe connector I would HIGHLY recommend the R9 270 I posted. I think you'll be thrilled with the performance boost.

This looks like a lot of bang for the buck:

It appears to perform similarly to a 750TI:
