Default Video Card upgrade

I'm looking for some suggestions for a new GFX card for gaming (BF2, CoH, C&C ect)

I currently have a ATI Radeon X1300pro PCI-express 256MB.

Looking for something with significant performace increases, without breaking the bank $200 max.

Thanks

Well AMD is having an event at Tunisia later this month which will be featuring the r600, and Dell already placed orders on a ton of r610s so I think if not this month, it'll be coming out early or mid next month.

Oh, when did AMD buy ATI?

Sorry, but I am only up to date with computer technology and news from September 2006, lol.
