What Card to get? Choices choices

Hi all
Just need a little help here. I currently have a Nvidia 9500GT card. Its started playing up a little so i need a new one. Now, obviously my money is tight for this lol, so im looking for anyone who can help me. I would love something that is more powerfull but to be honest i dont think i will. Ive allways had NVidia so is it time to try ATI? Not sure, so much to choose from i just dont want to pay a fortune for something thats worse then what i have. I can play bioshock on this card but not at full settings, so something that would play that with good settings would be a bonus lol

Thanks for your help

Have you had a look at the GTS250, looks like a nice card and not too expensive.

To be honest mate, im looking at getting a new board with SLI in a couple months, i just wanted something cheap and cheerful. If i had seen this before i bought my ram i would have gotten that card instead lol

In my other computer I have one of these and it performs pretty good and you should pick one up very cheap.
