Upgrading GPU for Blizzard Games

Games & Technology
Thanks for taking some time to read this post, any helpful suggestions would be great.

I want to upgrade my video card to play Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, and the expansions for both at high FPS with ultra settings at 1920x1080.

I would like to spend about $150, though I would go up to just over $200 if necessary. Good heat control and low noise level would be great.

Also, any comments on affordable ways to get better performance from this set-up would be appreciated.
