Default Need help choosing new video card.

Hello everybody, my video card is fried and I need a little help choosing a new one, since I've fallen out of the computer loop. I don't need a high-end card, although I do do some casual gaming. I remember when the 8800 GT came out and that was a great budget card, is their something like that now? And, I only have a 400W power supply, so keep that in mind or recommend a new one if needed. Thanks a lot.

These are great card's for a very good price.Their are two, one with 256bit with 1gb memory which is the gtx465, other is 192bit with 768mb of memory which is the gtx460.Even tho the gtx460 clocks are higher than the gtx465, the gtx465 has more bit's and memory which is better than having higher clocks.You can always OC to the gtx460 or higher.Point is that the gtx465 is a way better buy than the gtx460, unless you get the EVGA gtx460 that has 256bit with 1gb memory but cost about the same as the gtx465.They have so many damn gtx460's and 465's it ridiculous.
