8800gt is still fine at the moment, though you could look at upgrading to a radeon 4870 as they are mint and are the current mid range king :-D

the 4870 is around 180+

whats the next one before this

4850.. just over £100.. faster than your 8800gt but only by about 20%

That's a bit higher than mid-range and the GTX 260 is better anyway.

The 8800GT (or 9800GT as it's now branded) is still a decent card but it's slipped down a bit, in it's place is the 9800GTX+ or the 4850. The 4850 is marginally faster and has DirectX 10.1 but the 9800GTX+ has PhysX so both have reasons to buy them.
