Default Antenna Broke On Wireless Card

I have a NETGEAR WG311v3. I need to buy another antenna. As long as it gives me good performance and is compatible, I don't mind spending a little bit of money. Are there any wireless cards that will give me better performance for around $30? Or, should I just stick to a new antenna?

I'm really trying to avoid USB. Thanks for the help! Any other places I can just get the antenna?

If you have one in your area, Radio Shack may have spare antennas. I bought a nice set of high gain antennas for my router at our local Radio Shack.
