The 760 will run you about $250.
If you want to save $25 get an additional GB of Graphical ram and use 30 watts less, you could get a EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SUPERCLOCKED 3072MB GDDR5.
By getting the SC 660 you will lose 192 Cuda cores, you will gain higher core and boost clock speeds, and an additional GB of Graphical ram.

There are supclocked versions of the 760 that cost ~$15-$20 more than the stock 760, they may be worth considering if you don't care about the planet(watts translate to pollution.)

EDIT: I don't know the prices in euros, but they'll be less.
Euros > USD
Maybe my week late post was too slow, Sorry!
I hope whatever card you get/got meets/exceeds your needs.

Running a 760 here it's great for an upper tier midrange card.
