depending on your budget, i would go with a used 450, or a used 460

it would also help if the rest of your rig was posted,

How cheap do you want it to be? You could get a Nvidia 8400, or even a 7200, but you wont be able to max CSS or DoD with them.

Snag up a $100 dollar GTS 450 at a computer store somewhere, then when your ready for your 560, exchange up for it. Pay the difference.

You can get a G210 for $5-15 after rebate from tiger direct. Its an ok card, but it works.

A GT 240 is a good little card, will play some of the older games fine. And it requires no power connections. And once you get the GTX 560, you can throw the GT240 in physx if you like. Just my opinion.
