Default Graphics card needed

Hiya, Solufien here. I'm looking for a new graphics card. Any advice? My CPU is a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Soc 939 1MB L2 DUAL CORE, and my MOBO is a Abit AN8 - Fatality Socket 939 motherboard. Thanks.

Leadtek 6800GT. 7800GT is way to expensive right now.

If he can afford a dual core processor. I think he can afford a 7800.

Doesn't necessarily mean he's loaded. But, my suggestion would be to just buy a 6600gt this month and wait another for ati. Simple as that, especially if you're rich. You could even use an old pci gfx card to save.
