I, personally, do not think it is reasonable to consider the gfx card in a vacuum. For example, what is the native resolution of your monitor(s)? Are you one who thinks bigger is better? Consider this article.
I have to agree with Kurahk7: I think it best if you figure out your needs based on your existing system (CPU, PSU, RAM, cooling), anticipated upgrades, and primary usage. Also, any chance of SLI or XFire in your future?
First challenge: ATi or NVIDIA.
Best is to cultivate a working understanding of computer components; then familiarize oneself with what is available and how it would nexus with one's needs, one's system, one's plans, one's budget; and then make that informed decision, "What is best for me."
So, let me reiterate and invite folks to waft technical vis-à-vis my initial query: which should ViperMWC buy: ATi or NVIDIA? Why? Simple answers only, please.
P.S. I would not let NVIDIA in my house, let alone my case. Now that's simple!

Thank you all for your suggestions and advice.
As Archie pointed out this is about the last upgrade my system as it stands can handle.
So a little more graphics power and I'll be happy, until the time I can afford a new system.
No brand loyalty here Monk LOL, Nvidia at the moment, but I'll go with the best i can get for my meagre resources,
I was looking over the GTS 250, but wasn't totally sure if it was suitable, but as it's come up on the
suggestions here I'm happy this is the range/type I should be looking for.
The ATI Radeon HD 5750 cards seem to be a touch more expensive here in the UK, but not by much.
So for me it'll be a quick look at the merits of each and I'll be set.
If I can corner the piggy bank that is.
Thanks again everyone.
