Default Have everything purchased except videocard

Check out my setup and tell me a good $100-$250 videocard to go with my final step.

Case: Cool Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel, ATX Mid Tower

Power Supply: Cool Master Real Power RS-450-ACLY ATX12V 450W

MOBO: MSI K9N4 SLI-F nVIDIA nFORCE 500 SLI chipset

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 4000+ Socket AM2 (65W)

HD: Seagate 320GB Serial ATA HD 7200/16MB/SATA-3G

G.Skill 2GB (2x16B) 240-Pin DDr2 SDRAM

Videocard: ????????

Also was there a better choice I couldve made for what I paid for the parts I've purchased. Main thing is the VIDEOCARD.

Newegg.com - Leadtek PX8800 GTS TDH 320MB Extreme GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

If you can stretch your budget 10 after mail in rebate this is QUITE a good card.

otherwise this one:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100185L Radeon X1950XT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail

If he plays on low resolutions, this will do:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100186L Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail

If he can wait for it, to restock. But that 512mb for $20 more, is a good deal too.
