I run Crysis with a AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+ (3GHz dual-core), 2GB PC2-6400 RAM with a GeForce 7600 GT 256MB video card, and Crysis runs at about 10 FPS, with everything set to high. I only need to drop the Shader Quality, and the game runs at 30 FPS or better. What video card could I get for under $150 that would run smoothly at higher settings?

None. Even the top-of-the-line 8800 Ultra, which is about $600-700 (depending on brand and level of OC), can't handle the game on Ultra-High settings at decent resolutions. For smooth gameplay on High settings, you would need at least a 8800gt, which costs around $260-300, but is very hard to find due to its popularity.

Ok, then what would be the best-performing card to get, for any game, under $150?

If you want DirectX 10 and Crysis then I would get nothing lower then a GeForce 8800 GT ~$250. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150252
For DirectX 9 I would get a Radeon X1950 PRO or GeForce 7900 GS for around $125.

The 8800GT may be more money but it will last you a lot longer and will probably be more cost efficient.
