Question Photography People! I Need Help Finding a Telephoto Lens!

Im in need of a telephoto lens for my Nikon D40. I tried searching for a 70-300mm lens but have come to find that this lens wont autofocus on a D40.

So my next option is a 55-200mm lens. There is one I am looking at that has the VR option on it, and one that doesn't have the VR option on it.
Should I get the one with the VR?

[im looking on keh.com if that helps anyone]
Thanks!

I guess you found what you are looking for, but wanted to say that I have the 55 - 200 with VR. I do not use the VR, as it slows the shutter response time. If all your pics are posed this is not bad, but this will kill any action shots.

I would also give up on the 70-300. To get one of those in the AF-S is horribly expensive, and when you do find them they usually suck for aperture.
