Whats a good video card for less than $150?

My motherboard will support 8X AGP. I go to Frys and I'm overwhelmed by the choices! Currently I have a Geforce 2 440mx but it's only 64mb. I've been having problems with the Team Sabre upgrade for Black Hawk Down and I've pretty much determined it's the video card causing it. That and anytime someone uses smoke on a map my player nearly stops moving.

Radeon 9600XT would be my recommendation.

Go to www.pricewatch.com and do a search for Radeon 9600XT, US Depot has a Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600XT for $149 + free shipping.

I bought a Radeon 9200 128 pci for 80 or 60 bucks can't remember which, and it's pretty good, I don't play many games though. But it's done good so far!
If that helps any

Compusa had a Radeon 9200 card with 256 megs for $79 after rebates. It's installed and working
