A radeon 6850(factory clocked version) Radeon 6870(factory or self clocked) GTX 560t, GTX 460 FTW and other same said models are among the best for thier price range. I am more partial to my Radeons, the aftermarket for replacement fans is not there for thier vanilla coolers, however I have not had any problems with my 4870(still running strong save the aforementioned cooler) and now a 6870 which runs like a dream.
wut, 560ti is faster then a 470 o.o
but anywhore, a 560ti can be had used for around $170 shipped, thats around what i paid for mine.
