Im building a new pc together, and i'd like some suggestions on what kind of Vid card i should be getting,
i intend on using my new build for video games such as COD4, Gears of war and Maybe Just a tad of Crysis,
and some current gen games, hopefully it will fit in to my case

im on a budget, so maybe 120$ to 180$ or depending on how good i see it as,
what is a good Vid card do you guys have in mind?

Case: ULTRA X-Blaster
Mobo: XFX 680i LT
PSU: an ULTRA LSP750 750 Watt power supply

Im thinking about these two right about now,

XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition 179.00$

XFX 9600 GT xxx 194.99$

I dont intend on using sli anytime soon, but maybe in the near future ill sli a good pair.
PS: not a ATI fan

Since you're budget is quite low, I'd go with the 8800GT as it performs better than the 9600GT (the one you selected is just overclocked, 8800GT is still better). This would not perform that great with Crysis, you can maybe set it to medium settings or lower (I don't play the game but I have heard that no video card can play this game at max settings).
