The performance you will get with a graphics card in that price range is well worth the extra 20-30 bucks. You will probably be looking at an Nvidia GTX 660 or an AMD Radeon 7850.

Nvidia: GTX 660

AMD: Radeon HD 7850

As for the power supply, I linked you to a Corsair 500W in my first post, but I would go with a 600W instead. Either the Corsair CX600 or CX600M(semi-modular) would be perfect. All of those items are either on sale or have a mail-in rebate on them that will help keep you around $250-275.

If you have any other questions, just let us know.
Thanks, I'll be sure to consider them!
You are welcome......if you need any further help, just ask.
