Talking GPU- Help me find a new one!

Hey guys!

I finally have some cash to get a new GPU! I am currently running an GeForce 8800GT

My budget is around a flexible $250. My mobo is a ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

I really prefer the manufacturer of NVIDIA...all I ask is that you guys link me some cards below that are better than my current GPU.

Thanks!

I'm gonna have to make a vote for the 5850, even though it's a bit much for your price range.

5850 if you can spend the extra $50 over budget.

I had an Nvidia 9600GT, it died 9 months later. I now have an ATI 5770 and bought it on Amazon.com for about $155 or $160, can't remember exactly. I love this card!
