Well you'll need to double that budget as a bare minimum if you want to run the latest games. Even then you shouldnt expect it to run the latest games on anything but the lower settings.

Yea all the better cards are about 100$, So you will need to spend about 50 more bucks on it

I agree. If you do come up with that money, two good cards in that price range would the the 9600XT or the 9800PRO (9800PRO would be on the high-end of your budget).

If you really are that concerned about the price, my pick would be a 9600Pro @ $45. It'll do a decent job with games such as Half Life 2 at low-medium settings, but really isn't for modern gaming. You'd be best off to save up a bit more money.
