I always like going as high as you can within your budget so if you want to go with a GeForce card you can go with the GeForce GTX 660 for around $220 on Newegg (Link: ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.ca). If you want to go with an AMD card the Radeon R9 270 for around $200 on Newegg will be perfectly fine as well (Link: ASUS R9270-DC2OC-2GD5 Radeon R9 270 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.ca). As always it's your computer so whatever you feel like best. Also if you are researching for video cards and see that they are PCI-E 3.0 and your motherboard is PCI-E 2.0, don't worry 3.0 works perfectly fine in 2.0 slots on motherboards

Mate, please take note the OPs location when recommending parts. This person lives in Aus so their prices will be higher.

Your best bet is probably this 270x.

Visiontek 900651 VisionTek 900651 Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 PCIE3.0 Video Card, DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort from mwave.com

I didn't even realize. I'm new to posting here so I will definitely keep that in mind for future posts. Thanks for pointing it out.
