Default Graphics Possibilities

I am planning on buying a brandi new graphics card. I want to get anything higher than the 128mb that i already have. I have about a $150 - $175 budget. I want to get a nice one that would last a while. I would prefer an AGP 8x, cuz thats what mine is now, but a PCI one would do fine, at least, I hope it would! I have 1gb of RAM, Pentium 4, 2.80ghz, and an ASUS P4P8X SE motherboard, just to clue you in on the hardware im running. Currently I have an ATI Radeon 9200 SE 128mb AGP 8x graphics card. So, give me sone good ideas on what to update too! Thanks in advance!

For about 150$, you can you get a Geforce 6600GT, which I think is probably the best deal out there. Or, if you're willing to fork a little more cash out, try the X800GTO or some of the new medium-end cards that both ATI and nVidia are manufacturing.
