Default GPU upgrade

I'm surprised that my 5870 that it lasted me this long but I feel like upgrade it and putting this 5870 into another small/home media pc instead. I want to get a new one for my current system but I don't want to break my bank.

Not particularly looking for a big *** GPU to play ultra-high settings as I only play few games. I currently looking at 270x, 280 or gtx 760 as I think they fit my budget without exceeding 200.

CPU: i5 Haswell 4650
Mobo: gigabyte h87-hd3
Memory: 8gb corsair
