In need of a gfx card

I have a budget of $200 for a video card... I need something that will last a long time and that will run fear, cod2, halo and bf2142 on good settings so that I can play them very smoothly.
I've been an ati fan but whatever fits my needs for 200 i will take
(newegg link plz)

At school atm but, checl out the 7900gt or gs they are very nice, not sure how much they are, stupid school firewalls.
Get a Conroe...

I suggest a 1900XT (Aren't they about $200?)

lol gon "(get a conroe)"

Its going to have to be PCI x1900xt? Do they run hot? Would I need another cooler for it?
Hot yes...but not a need for another cooler.
I vote for the Saphire x1950pro, egg link here - 199$ It's performance is not far from the x1900XT, actually they are very very close.
It's pretty cool, silent stock fan and plenty performance. The x1900XT consumes quite a bit more and has a noisy stock fan.

If you prefer nVidia you can take a Gigabyte 7900GS for 195$ cooled with Zalman vf900. A bit poorer performance than the x1950pro and lower image quality but it OCs more than the ATI. If you aim for records this is your card, but for a day-to-day use I recommend the ATI.
Another Vote for the X1950PRO also. Great card for the price and runs 60W below the typical X1900 So runs a little cooler.
Another vote for the X1950Pro from me. Good overclocker, great picture quality and nice price!

Eh, why is the X1950PRO so expensive, even if the rates are insane right now?

I can get that for like $185 on current rates (5.65), $110 on standard rates (7.5 DKK per USD)
X1950pro would be good but if you want nvidia there was a deal on a 7900GS at bestbuy.com but they're sold out right now. It was listed at 199.99 with 50$ instant off, second time it's been out of stock since I seen the 50$ off. The first time it came back in stock the 50$ off was still going so I'd imagine when it comes back again it'll be the same ~ can't say for sure.
