9800gt/4850 if lucky. GT240/5670

If in the US you can look on the second hand market for better deals but you have to know how to shop to find the best deals and avoid rip offs.

Some of those cards are very overpriced. I only paid $80 for one of my 9800gt 1gb.

Depending on the cooler and quality of the card it may be worth the expense.

Its a good thing that I keep people guessing but that aside I only buy for quality and on the second hand market. How else would I land a XFX 780i for next to nothing with all but two of the accessories for $38.77. Then I landed a EVGA 8800gtx for $32 but that needed a cooler and 3 caps. I am also a collector of cards and have bought many over the past two years. I like my 55nm 9800gt 1gb.
