You could replace it with another 8500GT.

Budget and purpose?

EDIT: The 8500GT is no longer produced, so they will be hard to find and/or way overpriced. I wouldn't even worry about replacing it with the same card.

Far as a cheap replacement, this would be the easiest since you just pop it in, and don't have to worry about drivers:

Far as the best replacement, The ATI HD6670 is the fastest card you can get without replacing the power supply:
