Now that I bought a muuuuuch better psu for my computer, I'm looking to upgrade from my 9800gt (1gb or 1/2, I can't remember) to a ~$250 range card. Also, I have a mATX board (lol) so I can only fit one PCI-e card (which means sli/crossfire is out of the question).
Any suggestions, or should I hold out until the titan drops in price?

Looks like you can get a GTX 760 for $259 on newegg or drop down to a GTX 660 (pretty much what I have) for $209. I really like what I can run on my 660 but for the extra $50 it might be worth getting the 760. Check out some benchmarks maybe. Also consider what games you'll be playing.

How can you not like a girl who is 26 but look 13?

I'll need all the power I can get to play Microsoft Excel. But for real, I held out on newer games like Arma III because I could barely play the demo/alpha on my current rig. And that 760 looks nice, I might pick it up on newegg because they've got rebates and junk. l'm also wondering if there are any good amd cards.

I don't know anything about amd. Speaking of rebates I know a lot of the Nvidia cards come with free games (splinter cell blacklist & assassin's creed iv & something else i can't remember maybe) so that could be a tie-breaker if you're deciding between two things.

I use an amd HD 7970 and it is awesome.  Seems like newegg is sold out of every version though.  The only thing you really need to keep in mind with the amd cards is the amount of power they use.  I would suggest checking toms hardware for some comparisons, benches and whatnot, they usually do a pretty good job.

The amd cards usually come with a few games also.

It's really weird how amd cards are completely out of stock on newegg.

I don't keep up with AMD anything anymore. Their slight and sometimes great underperformance and higher use of power compared to the competition in the CPU market used to be acceptable because they were usually much cheaper. When they raised prices to match competition, in my opinion, that is when they lost most of their staying power. When they bought ATI out and didn't provide any significant architecture improvements and still maintain their crappy catalyst drivers, they lost their redeeming power. I've always had bad luck with any ATI card pre-AMD or post-AMD as well.

I forgot all about Toms hardware. It's a shame there aren't more names in the video card market these days.

Really? I'm so disappointed in my HD7970 I've vowed never to use AMD cards again. Do you OC or anything? Because I get piss-poor fps in everything. I didn't expect a step up from the HD6990 it replaced, but I didn't expect such a step backwards, either.

GTX 760 is the way to go. A $250 card. Great performance. Best of all, down the road if you want more power just buy another one and SLI. Benchmarks for SLI'ed 760 puts them as being more powerful than a GTX Titan.

A little OC.  I really only play CS so my view could be skewed.

MSI GTX760 twin frozr sushi, 259 and comes with Blacklist and AC4 (if you buy one over $400 it comes with the new batman as well).  I have had no issues out of it, runs everything on ultra (except BF4 have to turn AA off, stupid EA and their textures).  Don't forget, GTX6/7 series cards now have SHADOWPLAY!!! no more using fraps.

Yeah, that's actually the card I've got my eyes on. Looks like I've got my Christmas list ready lol.

I'm assuming running it at 1600x900 will be fine? I have no plans of getting a new monitor.
