Default New Video Card Question?

I dont want to spend a crazy amount on a video card untill the dx10 cards come out so i just want something to hold me over and play some games on a descent setting. I was lookin at the BFG GeForce 7300 GS OC 256MB PCI Express Video Card from futureshop which is 120 which i can afford, i also have to do this with out my parents knowing, not hard but im limited to instore now. How good is the 7300?

I wouldn't get a 7300 for gaming...

Maybe a 6800Xt... or a 7600GT?(A bit more expensive..) or an x1600xt...? x850xt... a lot of choices... :P

All of the cards there are like 100 dollars - 160 dollars on newegg :\
(I realize you can't order from newegg, so whatever one is cheapest for you at a store near you..)
