1050Ti 4GB or 280X would be decent if you can find them for decent used. Should be around there.

Gtx960 4gb is as fast as a gtx1050ti, and 95% as fast as a gtx770 with double the vram.

If you can find one for $125 , that's a good deal.

Hmm that is a good point. A 960 is likely the best way to go then, as long as it is a 4GB version. I would also consider 3 or 4 GB AMD cards if they can be found for a decent price, such as 7970, 7950, 280(X) or 380 4GB.

Hmm, looks like all the decent GCN cards on ebay are over $150, all the way back to the 7950. Just a bad time to buy video cards I guess.
