I have a GTX 560 (non-Ti). It has a very easy OC of 930/1860 using Afterburner. At that level is slightly faster than a GTX 470 (and about the same as a stock Ti), uses less power and dumps less heat in the room. Cost $180. It tried a GTX 470 about this time last year. Felt like I had a space heater running in the room (and I returned it).

I will choose 560 because it is newer and better, but if you can add some budget, i will suggest 560Ti or 6870. a little money bring lots performance.
btw, I recommand gigabyte for his fans' design, quiet and good heat dissipation~

I recommended Nvidia GTX 560. It is better than GTX 470.

Check this link, read carefully and see the difference specially texel and pixel rate and then decide which card you will have to purchased.

If this is happening in december then I would wait and see what is available then,
if I had the choice I would have to see the exact models, I would have a very hard time choosing the 560 over the 470 its a really powerfull card, reallyl powerfull after a modest OC itss actualy an amazing card unless it has a blower fan then it sounds like a leaf blower and is as mentioned above realy hot.
 
another theoretical build in which some kid waiting for an overpriced christmas gift...

without a real build you will not be running anything, what are your entire full system specs including monitors resolution and power supply make and model? I wouldn't be getting a gigabyte psu if your buying it new
