Default What's > 9800XT

I'm soon gonna upgrade my video card... What is significantly better than a ATI Radeon 9600XT, comes in AGP format, and doesn't cost more than 200 bucks? I kinda' don't wanna spend any more than 130 by rights... Any ideas?

7600GS would be a good choice. i'm not sure how much the 7800GS goes for these days.

well if a 7800GS can be had for around $230 i would reccomend scrounging the extra cash for that.

edit: sorry in my speed reading before i didn't notice you don't want to spend more than $130, i only saw $200
