Default Need new video card...

Im tired of my ATI card, and its causing my monitor to flicker badly sometime's, so i was wondering if anyone knew of any Nvidia based cards that are better than the 9200se ati card, that is under $100 and can handle games like Halo, and warcraft 3 the frozen throne....

Nvidia chipsets dont have good price \ peformance in that range at all. ATI owns in the 9 series compared to the 5XXX series from nvidia.

9600XT gets my vote.
