Need help picking out an geforce 8800 that's about 200 if it exists.

8800GT depends on how much RAM you need.

The 512 is around $260+ USD right now, the 256 can be found $200-220.

I found some cheap cards but i can't find any that aren't on the internet. I'm also having to buy a new power supply. The cheapest one i can find is from Compusa and it's cheap because they're going out of business. I don't have the money for a high end 8800 and i can't find a low end one in stores. I hate ordering off the internet. Got any tips from where to order from? I'm thinking about tiger direct.

Yea go for the GT 512. Just about everything beats the GTS 320 these days, even the lowly GT 256.

yeah that's about what i figured. Will The gt run all my games at full settings.

My system:
amd 4000+ processor 2.1 Ghz
2 gigs of ram
19 inch widescreen monitor
(8800 gt 512 ram) not yet bought

Yes it should run just about every game (except Crysis) very well. Your CPU may limit your performance a bit in CPU heavy games, however my 3800+ hasn't been much of an issue.
