Post Lost in the jungle that is GPU choices...

Hello Guru's

My girlfriend is in need of a new GPU and I was wondering what might be a good choice that fits in the NZXT Panzerbox case and what better place to ask

Here are some guidelines I'm trying to follow:
  • If at all possible -without shooting myself in the foot- I'd really like to support AMD / not support Nvidia at this time. Lets leave it at that
  • Price idea: US $200-300 (or to be more precise, around 2000 DKR on here: http://www.proshop.dk/Grafikkort.htm )
  • Usage: Gaming, watching films, browsing
  • Faster than my old Gigabyte GTX 760 2GB
  • Absolute maximum height is 120mm (there is ample room at the far end of the card, so that does not include room for PCIE power if located around there, but around the PSU that is what room the case has)
  • Bonus points for a quiet card. Not necessarily all the way down to passive cooling, but quiet at around idle would be great
