Looking for something that is a decent upgrade over the GTX 970 without spending a fortune. Budget around $200-300.

Guys! I figured it out! He has an asus 970 in his signature :)

You can pickup 1660ti's from CDW outlet for less than $200. Userbenchmark shows a 1660ti being 50% faster than your 970. Or you can do a 2060 (find one on sale) I got one for $260 a while back. A 2060 is 65% faster than a 970 - Plus its "RTX" capable.

Does it have to be NVIDIA? A 5700 (or 5700XT depending on sale/coupon) is within that budget.

Correct, a 5700 exchanges blows with a 2060 for around the same price (sans RTX if thats a selling point for you.)
