Default Video Cards, So many options, so little money!

Hello everyone!

I am an avid gamer. Unfortunatly, my computer died. So, I bought a new one. But here's the problem, the video card that came with it is horrible. My plan is to get a new video card, either from ebay, or elsewhere. Here's where you guys come in, I need your advice!

My specs:

AMD Athlon 64 processor
512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM Memory
160 GB 7200 RPM
And finally, the crappy SiS Mirage2 Graphics with 128mb shared video memory

Note: I'm looking for something that is cheap, effective and will run Battlefield 2/HL2/Doom 3

Thanks~

EDIT: Looking for AGP!!!

heh, no matter where you go on this site, 90% of the time you'll be recommended with the 6600GT for low cost and 6800GT for big spenders.

Agreed, get the 1Gb, you'll need it.
