Cool Video Card suggestions?

I am building my 1st computer and i was wondering if anybody has some video card suggestions, I have found a few on newegg but i didn't know if there are some better or cheaper ones out there. My budget is about $100-$150 here is one that i found that i think would be good.

Thanks, Wee493

Or the GT XXX if you know how overclocking works since it can easily meet the GTS and XFX's warranty covers overclocking. But don't go with the 7600GS if you plan on playing games. I would suggest the 8500GT (wich is about $100) over the 7600GS

The XFX 8600GT that freestyler linked would be a very nice choice for you. It will handle all your games effortlessly and is DX10 compatible.

Thank you i liked the suggestions, I was wondering if there is something bad about 512Mb video cards, or are the cheaper 512's crap?

No, there's nothing really bad about 512MB cards, it's just that in some cases the 256MB counterparts are faster performing.
