Question What is the best Video card for under $200

I have $200 I can spend on a new video card.

What is the best one out there, under or near that price?

It can be ATI or Nvidia, 128MB or 256MB. It also has to be an AGP card, not PCI-E.

I have seen benchmarks from Toms Hardware, but those were done from several months to a year ago. Drivers today could have improved the scores of the cards they tested, so keep that in mind.

Damasta55r, what temp does your eVGA run at, and will it auto-overclock?
