Default wich video card should I take?

I need a video card for my computer. I want a 512 mb but not too expensive.
with the job I have, I only make 150 $ a month. but in x-mas time, I get LOT of tip. like 300$. I just hope it happens again. well, I currently have 50$ in my wallet. next month, I'll buy my cpu. a c2d 2.6 ghz at 250$. if I can, I'll buy my video card near x-mas. but I want to keep some money for gifts...so I don't wanna go over 200$ for it.
yeah, these links are french because I am. (don't kick me xD) and this shop is around my town.
you can suggest some other video cards if you want... but I want it faster than the one on this crappy computer I got for the moment.

a guy in a shop told me this one would be great: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...773&CatId=1826

^ why the last one?

btw does tigerdirect ship to france ?

out of the french ones id have to go for the first once - since ive heard that the 8600GT series doesnt perform all that well despite being the newer model.

I'm not in france.. I'm from quebec. and I have that last one around. I could easily buy it by walking there.
(quebec is in canada, near montreal)

oh sorry my bad i took from you being French you were from France

but, note that the 8600GT series of GPU's haven't had good reviews - in fact some say they perform worse than 7600 series of GPU's.
