Default Which video card to buy for my $1000 build?

So far, I have already spent ~$750 after tax for the following:

Case: Corsair 500R
CPU: i5 3570k
CPU heatsink: Noctua D14
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-Ud5h
RAM: 2x4gb Kingston HyperX memory kit
PSU: PC power & cooling 750w mkII silencer

I'm planning to pick up a Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500gb drive - $70.

That will leave me $180 for the video card.

$1000 is not a strict limit, so theoratical budget for the video card is $180~$250.

I prefer buying a card off craigslist, ebay, or here.

Please advise! Thanks in advance.

Maximum resolution: 1080p single monitor.
