Default Video Card Suggestions

I'm looking for a video card replacement for my ATI FireGL 256 MB card.

I need something that can handle F.E.A.R. and Doom 3 at maxed out settings... with ease. Any suggestions?

whats your price range? For right now, x1900XTX or 7800GTX 512, if you have all the money in the world that is.

Will the other two video cards I listed be able to handle F.E.A.R. and Doom 3 with ease?
