I'm wondering if a gt640 would be a good upgrade from my gts250. I'm also running a Pentium dual core e5700 clocked at 3.5ghz and 4gb's of ram

No. You'll gain DX 11 but its slower then the GTS250. Even the GTS550TI isn't much of an upgrade. GTX460 or GTX560 is worth the money.

Hello,

Good upgrade for what? Dual screens? 3D? Compute abilities? Gaming?

What is your budget? What is your current power supply? What is your motherboard model and name? What resolution do you plan on playing? What are you expecting from a new graphics card in terms of performance?

Quick question requires not so quick answer!

As far as budget goes. I'll spend up to 150 bucks. I forgot my motherboard and psu model. I no my modo is make by Asus and its socket 775. It has one pcie 16x slot. A budget mobo. And as for my psu. I forgot it was but I know it has 2 six pins connectors and one eight pin connector, and right now I game at 1080p with most details high and that's what I wanna keep doin. I just want faster frame rates now

Then my answer stands. GT640 or 6670 isn't faster then your GTS250. (Neither is the GTS450 if you see one of those.) The GTS550TI is faster, but not by much. GTX460 or 6850/6870 would be worth it. But even then it might be iffy.
