    Get Radeon 5850. It's be the best bang for the buck, really.

    It is around 240-300 USD in USA, not sure about AU prices, probably a bit more expensive.

    You could wait for new nvidia fermi chip to get on markets so that 5970 will get cheaper.

    You can either wait for Fermi (unknown wait though), or grab a 5850 and overclock the hell out of it.

    In AU all the high end cards are expensive as, Cheapest youll find a 5850 from an online computer store is probably about 400.

    http://skycomp.com.au has the HIS ATI HD5850 for $383 australian, and shipping is $15-$30

    EDIT: Calculated that shipping is $17 to Perth postcode 6000, so thats exactly $400
