Default Best bang/buck nvidia card?

Most budget video cards seem to be Ati at the moment, but being a linux user, using them can be a pain. Any suggestions?

Depends on what you're going to be using it for; any gaming at all? GTS250/GTX260 are pretty good BFB.

agreed, the GTS 250 is pretty cheap, but it'll run most games well.
