Hi guys I'm new to the forums and looking for some help. I recently picked up CoD4 and realized that my vid card can only run it at the lowest resolutions. Anyway I was planning on building an entirely new computer in fall or '08 so I just want to upgrade my graphics cards and CPU to play this game until I build my new comp. Below you will find my current PC specs and I just want to know what vid card upgrade would last me until I build my new PC.

Mobo: Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Memory: 2GB Corsair
Vid Card: Radeon X700 Pro

Oh and I am willing to spend up to $400 on the video card. Thank you all in advance!

If you can wait for the 8800GT to be back on stock (Don't know when) then get it. However if you can't wait, then either of these two would make a decent deal at their price point (The XT is the better deal):
