Default New video card

I was wondering, what would be the best card in the 200 dollar range?

Also, I was looking at these,


which of those are better?

And finally would it be worth spending the extra money to pick up a evga 6800GT, if I did I would also need a new case and power supply. Thanks for the help.

All depends on what your playing, I'd wait for the 6800.

Either 6600gt or 6800 or if you can afford 6800gt.

190 can already get him a 6800 (they have very good power requirements too) assuming you have agp 4x/8x, this card should do you nicely
