well then get a 6600gt or a 6800 vanilla. Both are under 200 plus you shipping you got to work out on. Try newegg.com they have them both under that price.

Throw out a few more dollars and you got a good setup

9700Pro is the best out of the cards you listed however

yeah, out of the cards you listed, the 9700 Pro is a stud. I had its midrange product for a long time (9500 Pro) and it kicked ***, so if the 9500 chewed through games, than the 9700 Pro would ask for seconds. (just don't expect AA and high AF settings at all)
