If you can get a GTX 770, go for it. Radeons are overpriced for now due to mining.

For manufacturers, I personally prefer Gigabyte. It is factory-overclocked, and has the best cooling solution performance wise (Asus has a lower temperature, but also lower clock speed which explains). Their Windforce X3 also presumably cools your motherboard, however I doubt that...

all of these are tier 1/2 and quality built and reliable

for your price point the 760 is the best card in the 200-300, these are the benches for it

in most games you will be able to attain max settings and 60 fps avg
there will be a few games that it wont be able to play max settings and 60 fps (crysis 3, bf4)
if you can afford a 330 price range you could go for a 770, it has on avg roughly around a 20% increase in paerformance
