I'd go the R9 380 personally. But make sure your Power Supply has the appropriate connectors for the model you are looking at buying, if it doesn't then the GTX 960 would be your best option (although you can get a new GTX 1050 around this price and should be stronger). Hope this helps :)

*Edit* What is the 450w PSU exactly? If it's a good one like a Corsair CXM 450 you'll be fine.

The R9 380 is the stronger card, but the GTX 1050 is much more power efficient and cooler. See some benchmarks here > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3XCNlBNmRM.

The grey label is the new lineup, much better quality and better in every way. The green were known to be sub-par and use lower quality parts. They are also older. What shops do you think you'll be buying from? We can help you find a good supply in your budget.
