760 or 770.

Come October, the 800 series will release, so that could change.

Oh, I've heard you can find 660Ti for around the $150 mark. That would put it up there as well.

Okay, cool.

Could a 770 handle Skyrim with an enb fairly well (60FPS) @ 1920x1200? Or would I need to break the bank for a 780 or better?

Without taking Mods into account, SKyrim is not to demanding. And even with heavy modding a 770 should be pretty decent still.

Unmodded or even lightly modded a 760 would be fine too.

I have a 770 and I use ENB (that's the only graphical mod I'm currently running, tho) and it mostly stays at 60 fps with everything maxed @1080p (I use ENBs anisotropic filtering and antialiasing), only when entering cities I can see a deep to the low 40s. I cap my fps at 60 fps tho.

I use a 770, runs modded Skyrim perfectly.

most recent game I played was Watch Dogs and it runs that on ultra very well with theWorse mod.
