X1800XT

Or better yet,x1900XT provided that you OC the CPU.
Both are high end and will have no problems runing current apps(games in general).
You might consider Nvidia's 7900GT but still it is beaten by x1800xt. It does run cooler though.
Well, if you go x1xxx you'll have to ensure that you have enough power to run them. Also you'll need some space since the card is pretty bulky and big. A case with good air circulation would be advisable.

Again, a x1800xt won't let you down. It delivers a very generous performance for the price.

X1800XT. The 7800GTX is WAY overpriced for a card that gets pwn3d by a $300 7900GT. If you're considering a 7800GTX, you should get an X1900XT for the same price. In the $300-400 price range, the X1800XT is the best card.
