(transfer rates roughly twice as fast) If you have your choice of the same card with either type, choose GDDR5 as long as it's not too expensive. This guy looks nice and its the same price as other GDDR3 versions with its $20 MIR.
Depending on how demanding your games might get in the future, why not bump right up against your budget ceiling with a 6770 for $100 after MIR? The 6770 would probably sit at my "low-mid end gaming" recommendation. It should even give you decent 1920 x 1080 gaming performance on the latest most demanding titles at medium quality video settings.
