Default Which Graphics Card For My New Build?

I need your help finding a good graphics card for this sysytem:

Processor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103603

Mother Board- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130527

Hard Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145088

Memory- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211130

CD/DVD Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827131417

CD/DVD Burner- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106009

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144076

Video Card- ???? Must be from newegg though

I'm not really a hard core gamer that plays the best new high demanding games. I usually play Call of Duty and SWAT and games like that. So I don't need anything too crazy.

Do you think I need any more cooling fans? If so how many and which ones? Where should I mount them?

Thanks for your time!!!

6600GT ~ $150

6800GT ~ $200

7800GT ~ $300

There are your three options, all in order of increasing price and performance. The 6800GS probably provides the best bang for buck.

I would highly advice the eVGA 6800GS. eVGA is my brand. It's my baby! And the 6800GS is a great performer, especially for the $200 sweet spot.

Go for exactly what he^^^ said. eVGA 6800GS. Best bang for the buck, very good performer, especially after overclocking.
