Budget? What do you want this card for, I,e, gaming, video rendering, etc.? As for "best" there are probably several options open to you.

If you can stretch it another $20-30 a 970 would be really good for that machine.

I know but the 970 have that problem 4GB is 3.5 you know
The memory limit on the 970 only comes into play at super-high AA settings or a very high resolution (above 1080p), or a combination of the two.

In other words, you have to manually tweak the settings that high to get it to choke.

It's okay - if you've already bought into the 3.5GB is not enough mantra then don't bother getting a 970. Why not go AMD then?
