In your budget, I would go with Radeon R7 260x otherwise save little more money and go with Geforce 750ti. Wait and see what others say.

I'd toss 30 bucks in and get a 750ti.

If you don't mind getting "official" used, Amazon has some in your price range actually.

Is there difference between the ti and normal 750?

Yes, a pretty good difference in performance.

I dont think ill be needing the ti. I even think the normal 750 is a bit overkill. Plus, the ti is more closer to 200 Dollars...

The problem is your CPU is weak so you want more GPU grunt to attain better FPS than somebody who might have a G3258 would get.

Depending on what you want to spend, the 265 is also competitive towards the 750ti with a price closer to the 750. Up to you.
