The 6800XT would be better than anything you have listed so far, but it's not great. You want either a 6600GT, a 6800GS (or GT), or a 7800GT, in order from worst to best.

Ah, perfect! Where do you live? I need to know so I can find an online store that ships to whatever country you live in.

Oops, I forgot the power supply, get the Antec TruePower 2.0 550W PSU:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...Antec_103.html
That will pull the price slightly over your budget so we will have to get a slightly less powerful video card:
OcUK GeForce 6800 GS 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...CI_Series.html

Oops, and I also forgot the memory Ok, here:
Corsair 1GB DDR Value Select PC3200:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...ue_Select.html
