Agreed, if you don't overclock then you want the x1950pro or ideally the x1950xt

Well, here's a great card that fits the budget.
x1950pro with a vf900 cooler...it's b-grade so that means there might be a manual or driver cd missing but it's a pretty good deal.
Sapphire ATI Radeon X1950 Pro ULTIMATE SILENT 256MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - OEM (GX-143-SP)

Or you can buy my 7900GT with a vf900-cu cooler flashed to 640/840mhz for 100 quid....trounces the x1950pro
