Nvidia is still king, AMD has improved but they still require 1 core/thread per client to keep the card working at 95%+ load.
I would go for at least the 560 and avoid the SE editions. Really there would be no large performance loss from picking up a 460 1GB edition either and you would save money.
EDIT: TBBB beat me to it. Just keep in mind that there is a 'V2' version of the 460 out there that has a cut down shader count, just like the 560SE. Avoid those cards, too.
