New games, High settings for a while, lower-midrange budget (or less!).

Wait for the the 660's release and hope for the best?

Untill the 660Ti is out which may but problebly wont come in under $300

The best card for the money is a 7870 at $255 after rebate.

Or if you want to keep to the lower end of your range a 7850 for $219 after rebate.

But none of those 3 cards have much of a shot at PS2 in high with a decent resolution.

I'm not so sure about that. Those are pretty decent cards and the dev team has said that they are working on optimization at this point.
