The GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB is probably the overall price/performance champion, but depending on your monitor's resolution (1280x1024, 1920 x 1080, etc.) and price range there may be a better solution for your needs.

GTX 660 ~$170 very good entry point. MSI TF and ASUS models go on sale periodically
GTX 770 ~$400 on the high end side of things.
7870 GHz ~170 probably better than 660
7870xt - No longer viable cause of price hike
7950 ~$250 BEST OVERALL BANG for any MANS BUCK!! beats 670 most of the time

660 ti/670 no logner VIABLE.
MY recommendation is wait for 760/760 ti release and price drop of everything else.
My bet is that 760 will be the best bang for the buck card!

CRYSIS 3, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon? Wow, you're almost right with buying the games and getting a free card...

Even if AMD got a really good discount on those game codes, their per-card margins must be either infinitesimal or even negative...

7950 for sure. I paid $313 for mine and I've surpassed 680 Classified's ($600) in benchmarks. They are overclocking monsters. I've benched mine at 1235/1835.
