Default which video card...?

*sigh* I'm still considering on which card to buy. I have only $200 right now, because the system which I was going to build, has been on hold because of college funding. (yeah yeah). So right at the moment, I havae a funding of $200. Which card do you guys recommend? Personally, I like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125164
because of the 256mb of memory. But also this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102463
becuase of the all-in-one thing it has. Also http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102529 Then http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127176.
Yeah, I know, Nvidia, so here's them http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814122208
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133129
My specs for my desktop:

Thanks in advance!

Man, if you take into consideration core speed-memory speed ratio, it's really easy:

It says the Newegg cannot find the product. Is that the Leadtek PX6600GT TDH Extreme Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI-Express x16 Video Card?

Yeah, but wouldn't an x800 compare to be a good choice too? On the otherhand, what about 256mb? Doesn't more memory mean better performance? Or is it just the gpu and not really the memory?

I just talked to my local PC Stop guy, and he said memory really dosen't matter, you gotta take into consideration more the GPU and (although not so much) RAM speed

...but the X800 DOES have 256-bit instead of 128-bit, so you decide which is more important, bit size or gpu/ram speed

I want to play CS:S, Half Life 2, Doom 3, etc. Which is better? 256 bit or a better gpu? I want good display and fast speeds and good lighting etc. What is better?
