Somewhere in the Tom's hardware was a review of modern cards. Might try to find that. I think they cover the bases.

You're obviously not from the US so we can only point you at some reviews & you'll have to find the best card in your price range. Crysis can bring even the best gaming rig to it's knees so be reasonable about your expectations:

Is there some reason why you can't list the info so that we don't have to click each & every link? How about something like this:
