Here's a good URL for comparing video cards:

.
$200 is sort of a difficult price point.

I'd either go low and get something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127284

Or go high and get something like this (this one has a mail in rebate, not sure how you feel about those.):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150171

Right at $200, I don't think is a really good bang for the buck.

In November Nvidia and ATI will both release new cards in the $200-300 range. Nvidia G92 processor, ATI RV670 processor.

For less than $200, I think I would go for an ATI 2600XT with the Valve coupon if possible. They are actually under $100 and you get the free Valve games.

Or, be lazy and consult:

But as mentioned, the 8800gt is coming out soon (an early hosting error at the FoxConn website said Oct 29th, today). I would suggest playing a waiting game and looking for a better mid-range card coming soon (ATI has one due soon as well).
