Civ 5 doesn't take much GPU power to run, the recommended specifications are to have a Radeon HD 4800 or Nvidia 9800 with 512MB of Ram or better. Though in single player CPU performance does matter quite a bit particularly on bigger map sizes. An R7 250 should be able to handle Civ 5 at high details at 1080p. If you can afford spending a little more than $100 I'd recommend getting the R7 250X instead of just the regular 250. According to Toms Hardware, In Battlefield 4 the 250X gets about double the frame rate of the regular 250. You can get an R7 250X for about $109 from Umart or about $118 from MSY.

I wouldnt under-estimate how hard it is to run... I cant run it at 60 fps flat on my gtx980 @ 4k... I would suggest looking at some benchmarks if you can find any

I don't really think that's a fair argument, most games don't perform well at 4K let alone at 60FPS and as Civ is a turn based game anything 30FPS or above is perfectly fine. We're not talking about Assassins Creed Unity here, we're talking about Civ 5 a soon to be 5 year old game. I can easy play Civ 5 at over 90-100 FPS with a GTX 670 on High Settings with 8X MSAA at 1080p and yes that is endgame with Satellites researched so the entire map is visible.
