Default Need New Graphics Card

Hello All. I'm looking into buying a new graphics card for Doom 3. I want a nVidia. What should I get(I'm not buying a 6800gt). Right now I only get like 7 FPS(Frames Per second) on it(you need at least 15 to have it be an animation). My price range is 200$-250$. PLese suggest.

omfg people always underestimating the 6600gt. get teh 6600gt either by BFG or Leadtek or MSI. i have the MSI and under load its only running at 52 degrees (celcius). getting high settings with a little lag here or there and never ran into any lag during a battle. i love it, although im running it at 800x600 but still. i think they are only like $199.00 there too on newegg

I would suggest the card I have, it's an OC'ed version running at 550/1120, or maybe it was 1020. Either way it;s agreat card that almost never goes higher than like 60-63C and gives great performance. I run HL2 on high settings with no problems.
