Default Best sub $150 video card on newegg right now?

Including manufactures rebates what is the best sub $150 video card on newegg right now? This is my first build so i am limited to just reading what reviews and videos i can find online.

This is what i have picked out so far. Its price to performance seems to be on point.
XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com

I will be using a I7-4790k

Thanks again!

That isn't sub 150, but it's the best in that price range.

The R7 265 is the best card in your price range. The 7870 you linked to is $250.

Here is the link to the 265 MSI R7 265 2GD5 OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.ca

If I was buying a card on a budget the r7 265 would be the card I picked for sure.

OP lives in the US, and when he linked on the 14th it was on sale for 159. I'd be willing to bet he probably bought it.
