I've been looking to get a new video card for my birthday, and I was wondering what video card would be the best for 250 dollars. My PSU is 530 watts, but I'll upgrade if need be.

Currently, the best cards under $250 are the GeForce GTX 660 and Radeon HD 7870, which sell for about $230. They trade the performance lead depending upon the specific game title being played (always check in-game results, synthetic benchmarks are often misleading).  Personally, I lean towards the GTX 660 because Nvidia's has better written/more stable drivers, and only Nvidia cards have hardware-level PhysX

*facepalm* Pretty much every graphics card is lying at your feet waiting to be purchased now.

By that, I mean find an online shop that will sell graphics cards and click the 'High to Low' button and click the first one.

What is the world coming to?

Serious Answer:

I've read about the sapphire cards when attached alongside each other (x2) which I believe is called 'SLI'? Meaning you can buy two cheap cards that have 2GB VRAM and then combine them, making a really powerful combination.

Sorry for the messy and quite bad answer.
