depends on your budget
tomshardware guide is prety good, if anything i'd lean towards an nvidia card rather than an AMD card I think for compatible hardware the nvidia drivers and software is a bit better.
GTX670's are great cards but still kinda costly even after recent price drops. anything above this really is not worth the extra cost.
HD7850 is a good card, gets you 256bit DDR5 for less $ another good thing about this card is that it only requires one extra power cable. means it's good on power and easy to crossfire later if you want to.
I own both of these. yeah sad I know I have 3 PC's, a laptop and I even have a new HD7870 sitting around doing nothing.
GTX650TI seems like a good budget card
the reality is STO generally is not that demanding.
