This card is more powerful and much cheaper than either of the cards you linked;

Depends on the resolution. It's the best you are going to do for under $100 without going for a second hand card. Most new current cards for $100 aren't actually an upgrade on your 9800GTX+.

Thanks a lot. Will the GTX 460 raise my fps? Cause for call of duty 4 i get 125fps steady. But want like 250 fps steady. Will it raise it?

Your monitor very likely cannot display over 60 frames per second. Even if it could the difference you are talking about would be indiscernible to the human eye.
BTW what processor do you actually have? There is no Q4400. You will probably want to overclock whatever it is if it is at 2.66ghz to get the most out of the new card, whichever one you buy.

Q9400 is good, lots of cache, clock speed is still low though. The cooler looks kinda flimsy but it should still probably let you get up around 3.2-3.3ghz with ok temps if I had to guess. That would help a lot, especially in games that only use 2 cores(there are still a lot of them.)

I'd wait till Tuesday....release of the new 560-448 should knock the price down on the old 560 Ti's ....but still Id expect to pay close to $200 for one of those. AT 1920 x 1080, I'd really not recommend anything below the 6870 ($170ish)

Not very good advice for a $100 budget.
