Default Need help picking a gaming video card

I'm thinking of updating my video card. The one I've got is 5 years old and was fine until I started using my computer for more and more gaming. Now it's just not adequate IMO. Things constantly look artifacty from time to time. It's a Geforce 8600 GTS if that makes any difference. Has only 256 mb of RAM on it. The thing is I have no clue when it comes to video cards and have no idea what I'm looking for. I can install them in my sleep, but picking one always puzzles me as the models change so frequently and I never have any clue what specs are meaningful and which one's aren't. If it matters I've got 3 PCI-E slots on my mobo and one PCI-E X16. I've got a budget of around $200 for this. Any suggestions?

This is my current mobo if it helps - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4354118
