Default 6200, 9800, 9600pro?

My PSU is pretty weak 450 watt, 14a and the 12v rail, so I want to get a video card that will play well with such low rails.

I have been looking at newegg.com video cards between 70-90 dollars, I will only be able to spend up to 100 dollars including shipping.

I have a 5200 that I can use right now, I want a step up or two, and I'm thinking about either a 6200, a 9600Pro or a 9800Se.

Thank you for your input,
Matt
