I'm about to upgrade from a 9600XT and it's only a month old. (Bought in early December) I'll sell it to you for a little less than your looking to spend if you want to email me. (I don't want to turn it into a selling forum but I'm gonna put it on ebay anyway so why not give it to one of our own) It plays Half-Life 2 at 1024x768 at medium great. I can also run UT2004 at 1280x1024 at medium settings getting 45 and 60 fps. And 1024x768 at high settings getting around 50-65f fps. It's a solid card for people who don't have a $250 and higher budget to spend on a graphics card (which puts me firmly in that category). I wouldn't be upgrading if a friend wasn't selling me his 9800pro for dirt cheap.
