if that's your budget then look for a x1950 pro or something.

Saving up for something like a 8800GTS is a much better idea though.

For the source engine games problems, try this:

Speed up all Source Engine Games

An underpowered GPU will not make the game 'freeze' it will make the game run at just a very low frame rate.
