Yeah that kinda sucks to be stuck with the card, although those things where mega horse power back in the day =P

EVGA E-GEFORCE GTS 250 Superclocked 771MHZ 512MB 2.246GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDTV Out Video Card - DirectCanada

You could always get one of those at the dirt cheep pricing then step it up to a GTX 285 3 months down the road if you think youll have cash by then? The price you pay for the card without tax and shipping will go directly towards the price of the new card =)
