Default Good Video Card Around $100

I'm looking for a video card that is around a 100 bucks. I play a few games, ie. Rome:Total War and FIFA 2005, so I don't think it has to be something extreme. Just something to replace my crappy Nvidia FX5200. Any suggestions?

umm you have to have PCIex but the 6200 is 100 bucks. You wont find a card much faster for that small amount of money.

Oh nevermind, you have AGP because I just realized that the video card you're replacing is the 5200 which is agp. So yeah you gotta look for an agp card.

It is 50 dollars more, and I usually don't recommend ATi, but my one of my best friends, Josh uses a 9600XT and it is very good.

Sry if it is too far over budget, but it is WAY better then 5200!
