yea, that's about right

some versions of the 260 are slightly stronger/expensive but they are all about the same for that range

If anything, I would suggest the GTX 260 Core216. Best bang for the buck, these days.

How many watts does your psu have?

What is your monitors resolution?

What does the label read on the side of your PSU. We need to know the Amperage on the 12v rail(s) and the total wattage of the power supply.

EDIT: The Evga GTX260 Core216 is a great graphics card not only because of their quality, but their add-on bonuses like warranty and 24/7 support.
