Any suggestions for mid to high end graphic card with Maya 2013 / Mudbox etc.?

My Quadro 5600 has just died on me & I can't afford another one like that. Could I use a gaming card? Some folk say that the GeForce GTX range is a good choice or even the ATI FirePro 7900, what GTX card would do the job or is it better to opt for a mid range Quadro 4000? (budget around $700). I normally do a lot of rendering with mid to high poly count, Mudbox & some work with AE & Photoshop.

My set up is:
P6t Deluxe V2 (oc to 3.4)
i7-920 Processor
12 gb memory Mushkin
Thermaltake 750w power unit
Noctua twin fan
Dual monitors

On thing, I'm a bit dubious about buying unboxed gear on ebay, I bought the previous 5600 on ebay for 800€ about 6 years ago, it worked well but struggled over 3 - 4 million polys. The dealer said it was new, and it looked new, but it came without its box. What I don't understand is why these cheaper cards, I presume new, don't come in the original box. I've seen a new 5800 for around 700$ on ebay, but again, it stated no original box. I this a good purchase option?

Really appreciate any help.

Cheers
