the gts 250 is a bit expensive for what you get. from ati's offerings, you can get a hd 4850 which is cheaper and offers similar, if not better performance.

these are some others that would be good in your price range
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100245HDMI Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100284L Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

but with your budget, dont expect to buy a card that will max something like crysis, unless you get lucky and find a good deal somewhere.

Ah yes, sorry for the misunderstanding, thx muffinman for clarifying.

If you wanted to stay under $150, then the 4850 or 5850 would be best, and get the 1GB version since you're needing to game at high resolutions.
