Well, you'd be surprised what most games that don't require supe cpu power, and can handle with a dual core. for $150 I'd say you can easily get a gtx 560 ti.

OP, you could get a Gainward Phantom GTX 560ti 2GB edition if resolution could be an issue for lower end cards thumb.gif

Agreed. You can get one on ebay for a bit cheaper (bids or buys, however i recommend bids).

If you can stretch it just a tad then 7870 for $185 after mail in rebate is very nice, link below. Otherwise 650 ti or 7770.

I'll vouch for the 7850s / 7870s series on this one as well as the 7770s / 7750s...

 

They're quiet, temps aren't as high as the previous 6XXX generation. I'd add a bit more into your budget for a 7850....I could stress my 7850 and it won't even break a sweat in XCOM:UE and SE2 on the highest graphical settings.
