Question Which Graphics Card Do I Need?

Hey guys, first post I recently sold off my Nvidea 9800GTX 512mb GPU, which I regret now, as the stock things in these machines can't even handle minecraft very well. So I'm looking at buying a low to midranged GPU that'll let me play some of the older games with a bit better performance. Chances are for any of the newer games I'll just use my 360 so I don't need anything too fancy. I also only have a 300 watt PSU so keep in mind I'll have to grab a new one if I decide on the cards that need that. So far I've come across these:

For $50 - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

For $120 (A little high but I can probably do a partial trade, or get him to lower the price) - BFG Tech BFGR88768GTXOCE GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

For $20 - XFX GT220XZNF2 GeForce GT 220 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
