Uhh, the GeForce FX cards are DirectX 9-capable.
To be blatant, the ATI Radeon 9200 Pro, will only give you a 5-10 fps increase in certain games, while performing worse than the 5200 in others (plus lack of DX9 capability, but I seriously doubt that the potential performance of any future games would be any good if it were supported)
The only other DX9 capable card I know of under $100 is the Radeon 9600 SE, but its crippled 64-bit memory path greatly cuts its performance.
