hrmm x1900xt is what i'd go with, they're only about 300 dollars, not too much more than a 7900gt.. and shows a marginal amount of better performance

The "best bang for your buck" = the most frames per second per dollar.

In which case I'd would think its the 7600GT ... TomsHardware did a test for CPUs that gave the most frames per second per dollar and it was the Athlon 64 3000+, but I don't know if they have done it for video cards.
