    i would say get a GTX 960 im extremely happy on my decision to get one of those cards and its whisper quiet and cool it idles at 30 - 35 deg most of the time, quite a powerful card, can do most games at 1080p with ease.

    Or if you're willing to spend a tad more get a GTX 970...

    That would still be a good card. Mate of my has that exact card and he is churning out most of the latest titles at High/Ultra res @ 1080p with little to no issues.

    Also, check out the below competition, you might get lucky and win a GTX 970

    Damn the prices went up something fierce. 3 months or so ago my brother bought the Galax GTX960 for R3k, now it is R3600! Damn

    You won't get a faster (new) card than the 960 for that price. The Galax GTX960 is R200 cheaper at Wootware though.

    Well, why don't you look at http://www.takealot.com/asus-strix-r...d/PLID40723918

    It's apparently faster than the GTX 960, cheaper than the GTX 960 and unfortunately an AMD card.
