Default 3D card choice...

Well, I got a Radeon X700 video card for christmas but santa screwd up and forgot that my computer dosn't support PCI-E. So tommorow when I return it and get a diffrent one I need to make a decision.
From the returned card I will get 200$ plus 20$ from returning a router that also dosnt work and using a 25$ gift card from future shop. So now I have 245$ to spend on a new 3D card, preferrably one that is better than the X700. Any suggestions on a good card that will Run Doom 3, Far Cry, Half Life 2, etc, for roughly 245$?

I found one that I liked, the All-In-Wonder 9600XT. Is this a good video card for gaming? or is it more for video editing?
