The best card for $150 is the Radeon HD4870. However, if you can sneak past your budget up to around $170, get the radeon HD4890. 'Tis a great card.

Thank you... Will the 4870 be okay with a crappy 305 watt PS? Sorry for the newbie questions.

+1 for the 9800, big upgrade and it'll run on your (Dell?) PSU with no problems at all, none.

Far better option would be the HD4770 which uses less power than the GF9800GT (which uses about the same as a 4830) so no worries about the PSU, and it outperforms the 9800 also.

Wouldn't bother with a 9800 series card at this point in time, aging and under-powered.
