Default upgrading 6850

Hey all,

I would like to upgrade my Radeon 6850 to an nvidia card and was wondering what you all have to suggest.
I am looking for something better but not crazy expensive either.
I plan on selling the 6850 to help cover the cost of the future card.
I am on Ubuntu 11.04 and will start playing around with the 3D software blender.org
Let me know

Check out the 560 Ti - should be what you looking for - depending on what you mean by "crazy expensive". If you go by the ranking on this website your traveling up the list by almost 50%= 16th to 9th.
