Help - shopping to be done!

My gfx card died yesterday (nvidia 8800GTS 640mb) after 2 years of loyal service and it is time to purchase a new one but I'm clueless about such things as according to the blurb each card is a technological marvel.

Current system is Vista 64-bit outputting to a single 24" widescreen monitor. I can currently play pretty much all my games at their highest spec and want that to continue. I have maybe £200 to spend - where is good? and seem decent but I've never used either before.

I have a 500watt PSU which may be an issue? I also have an SLI mobo if it helps but would think a single card would be better than 2 lower spec ones?

All assistance greatfully received as I want to replace the X1300 Radeon I've borrowed as soon as possible :)

    the computer build thread is where you want to be

    But generally the current recommendations are the HD 4890 and the GTX 285
