MSI GTX 465 Twin Frozr II Golden Edition (Unlocked to GTX 470)

Good choice tbh, a little over your price range. I'd say a GTX 460 but $210+tax = $240. Might as well get that card, JMO.

That's finished already. You can't get those cards any more unless you buy used.

SLI 2x GTX460's. There aren't enough PHYSX games to bother, IMHO. The only one I thought was worth it was Batman.
