PCI express video card

I just bought a new pc. It has 1gb of Ram and an Athlon 64 3500+ processor. It comes with the Ati x200 integrated graphics card. My old Radeon 9800 pro Agp card won't work. What would be a comparable PCI Express card. I play City of Villains and Wow. I am looking in the $199 to $250 range.

For Nvidia you'd need a 6600GT or higher. ATI probably X700Pro and up.

My recommendation (as long as you have a decent power supply): eVGA Nvidia 7800GT-256MB for $300 ($285 if you send in rebate)

If that's a little too much a 6800GS or GT would fall right in your specified range and would still wipe the floor with that 9800Pro.

I ended up buying the XFX 6800GS. Great card so far.
