best 350$ graphic card for Nitrous viewport

love Nitrous viewport since max2012 out, but my Quadro600 is useless since then. time to upgrade - i'm about to spend up to 350$ to get best Nitrous perfomance for this money.
any ideas? was waiting for 660Ti, but now it is still more expensive than 560Ti. maybe Radeon 7950? but i never use ATI in max.
appreciate any suggestions)

If you're doing viz work wouldn't it make more sense to find the card that is best for iray/vray rt?

no. i'm not interesting in GPU rendering at all ) so Nvidia it not so essential

Well the 660 TI is better than the 7950 and $50 cheaper too

What's wrong with it being more than the 560 TI? It's better so costing more makes sense.

I dont think there are many viz artists working exclusively with RT right now.

I feel ya. I do viz all day long and we've never used nitrous either (our scenes could never handle it) so I guess different strokes for different folks. It was wrong of me to make that assumption, for that I apologize.

For some reason I was under the impression that Nitrous used the GPU for it's rendering as well. I must have been mistaken.

Of course Nitrous uses the GPU, but it's not rendering like iRay, it's more like video game rendering.
