Default Best AGP Card

I know that AGP is now outdone by PCI-E but I have a second computer that has a good M/B, ram, sound card, and HD's and the graphics card is the only thing that is outdated and in need up an upgrade. The motherboard for this system only supports AGP cards so I need to know which is the best AGP card to date which is either an ATI All in Wonder or similar nvidia card. Price range is $100 - $200

Probably either an nVidia7600GT or an ATI X850XT.

7800GS, eh? I guess that's my next upgrade after my RAM. When you think the price'll drop on this?
