Video Card Suggestions?

I recently purchased COD4: Modern Warfare. The framerates are running a bit slow, especially in heavy action. I want to upgrade and replace my current video card which is a Geforce 6600GT PCI-E which I bought 3 years ago. My budget is around $150-$200. What's the best bang for your buck video card? Any suggestions??

I am currently running the XFX Nvidia 512mb 8800gt, but thats out of your given price range. I would try to at least go with an 8series card for COD4.

By the way, i have that game to. It is simply amazing!!!

Newegg is selling a XFX 8600gt 256mb card for 127.99 with free 3day shipping.

Then the XFX 8800gt 512mb card is going for only $269 ****Best bang for your buck*** Will run most all games at very high frame rates...except Crysis of course

The problem with CoD 4 is how much it rapes cards. I can just barely run with comfortable framerates (around 40-50 with occasional spikes down to high 30s) at 1920x1200 and max settings.
