You can get an 8800GT for about $200, but since it's only for general use you could probably get away with an 8600GT or an ATI 2600. They are reasonably cheap and would let you game with moderate settings in most games should you choose to do so.

You may also want to consider a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 for your HD.

IF and it's a big IF, you really don't game then something as cheap as an 8400GS could work for you and it costs less than 40 U.S Dollars.

I would choose the following with your $200 budget.
EVGA 512-P3-N801-AR GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail $239.99

This Card would complete a nice machine, It is overkill for your needs however it would be future proof for you also.
