Since your motherboard only has one PCI-Express X16 slot, brand is largely unimportant since you cannot use SLI or Crossfire. Therefore, you can choose from a number of cards.

EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB
MSI R4890-T2D1G OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB <<< In most situations it is powerful than the GTX 260 or HD 4870.
SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB

It pretty much echos what dpunisher has, though the 4890 is slightly outside your budget.

Which card you get really depends on the money on hand, the power supply (which is excellent, by the way), and the amount of room. The HD 4890 is more powerful in some situations than the GTX 260, but it will put out slightly more heat.
