Get a gtx and don't look back. The Nvidia experience is better imho. The drivers work better with fsx and they are updated more consistently. I upgraded from an ati 7770 to a Evga gtx 780 and so far it's been flawless

NIVIDIA works best with FSX. I have tried the comparison, even reviewed it in the past. You will see amazing results with NIVIDEA GTX cards.

There's the 650 and 670 for the previous generation cards if you want to save a bit of $.

 

If you want to push your budget a bit, I'd recommend the 750, 760. For slightly more expensive cards, and currently the strongest aside from the Titan, the 770, 780.

I currently use the 780 oc edition and I think it's worth the price.

 

Warning - I've heard numerous reports about an issue with the 690. I can't confirm but I'll provide an [edit] to this thread once I do some further research.
