For $160, look at the GTS250, or GTX260 (I dunno about american prices, so you might be able to).

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone Galaxy S7 Edge

nah, $160 would be too much for a gts 250, and it wouldn't be enough for a new gtx 260 either mayb like a used one.

for that much though, unless you really must have an nvidia, a 5770 would probably be a better buy.
