Default decent video card for 100-150

My secondary computer has had a 4200ti overclocked in it for almost 3 years. (maybe longer.) Anyway, The last month or so its been crashing alot and ive been getting errors saying the graphics driver has stopped responding. So im assuming its just getting to worn out from being overclocked for so long.

This isnt my main computer so i dont want to spend alot on something. Maybe 50-150$ US. With the current gen of cards im not sure whats better then what. Any tips?
