Default Need a Graphics Card

Im about to build a new computer that I want to use for gaming. Nothing hardcore, just something that will run Counter Strike, CoD, maybe Crysis. Right now I'm trying to decide whether to get on of these two, but if you have a better idea for under about 180 then let me know what you think.

  • ASUS EN9800GT ULTIMATE/HTDP/512M GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card ($129)

or
  • ASUS EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card ($127)

Which one should i get? Or if you have something better in mind, let me know. Thanks!
