Why on earth have you included the 9200, it doesn't really compare to the other two you've listed.

I'm personally an ATI boy, so I'd suggest the 9800 Pro, it runs Half Life 2 with flying colours so I don't you'll have much trouble with it running anything.

I don't know much about the 5500, although it should also be able to handle most things pretty well I'd say.

I suggest a Sapphire Radeon 9800 Atlantis. It is a great card or the Abit R9550-Guru. I have one and it plays everything I throw at it. However, it comes with the VGuru overclocking utility and mine is overclocked to the point that it outperforms a Radeon 9600XT w/ 256MB. The Abit R9550-Guru is a great budget oriented card and it only costs $80.
