Default graphics card

After this hellish christmas holiday is over I will be building myself a new computer. I'm looking to spend under $800 and I have just about everything lined up but the graphics card. I know very little about these other than ati's x800 is supposably really neat. I'm only looking to spend right around $200 on the graphics card tho and I'm wondering what the best one is for that range and where I may be able to pick it up (cheaper than pricewatch). This is only the 2nd computer I'll be building so try not to confuse me too much. Any suggestions are appreciated... links too
