I'm sure you get this kind of bollocks lots, but I'm not massively familiar with GEForce cards, as im converting from Radeon etc etc

I'm looking to spend between £150 and £200 on new graphics card, for that money whats the best I'm looking at?

Probably the 7800GT would be the best bet.

Radeon 9600 platinum, getting a bit dated now

I thought the 7800GT was around the £300-£400 mark

cheers man, just to continue a tiny bit, I'm using it for gaming - so is it likely to be a marked improvement on my current card for games such as AOE3, Doom 3 etc - the next gen games.

My system = AMD XP 2600+

1.5 gig DDR

There's also the 6800GS, which while not as good as the 7800GT, will last you a while. If you wait a bit, you can get the 7800GS, which is coming to everyone sometime soon. Although from the sound of it, the 6600GT is the best card, as I take you are running on an AGP board.

I am but I'm moving over to PCI Express for the reason of it kicking AGPs bottom

Alright then. Might want to say what you're thinking of getting for the other parts so we can best match a card to you.

Why are you guys suggesting 6600GTs and 6800GSs? 1 Pound = $1.75 USD... this guy has about a $300 budget. A 7800GT is about $300...
