Suggest me a decent nVidia graphics card

I have a desktop with Intel i5 2nd generation processor. But I have a weak graphics card called ATI Radeon HD 6250 which I discovered that it isn't great for gaming. I thought that 1GB VGA will be sufficient but I wasn't aware about the APU in VGAs. I have bought two ATI products and I am not happy with it. I am planning to move on to nVidia. People suggest me 540m but I am not great with graphics card since there are loads of models with variety of specs. Please someone help me with finding a decent nVidia card that is around $50 to $100. Thanks!

The nvidia gts450 can be had for around $100, or if you watch the deals a gtx550. Either of those would be decent.

Not going to find a 560TI in the $50 to $100 price range though. A 560 ti will put you around $220.

Looking at the acer site is this a laptop, if it is then i am sure you cant update the GPU there are only a few that it can be done in and they are expensive if you can find one.

Just a recap...

By "Reading" the post, one would determine that the OP has an i5 desktop that he would like to buy a new video card for. He is unhappy with ATI and would like to spend between $50-$100 on an Nvidia video card.

I have a laptop but I got a desktop PC with decent hardware just for daily use and gaming. I still use my laptop since I study, my younger brother uses the desktop. I searched some graphics card on the internet for a nice price but the power consumption was over 500W!. My Xbox 360 uses 140W instead so I guess I will stick with my Xbox 360 for now.

The power consumption of the cards is not over 500W, it's just that you need a 500W or better power supply to power the entire computer and provide enough amps, watts, etc.
