Cheapest Video Card to Play BF2 at Full Settings with acceptable performance?


I just got my new mb and processor up and running (ASRock Dual Sata and Venice 3200) and I'm already getting the bug to replace my Ati 9700 np so I can play BF2 at full settings with acceptable framerates. So what are my best options for the least amount of money?

a 6800gt could play it at high settings and cost around 250 maybe a little more but you could get a 6600gt that will play it a medium settings for less then 150

is there a budget or just the less the better

Well I could spend $600 but I would prefer to keep it a lot less because I have other debts I'd rather spend the extra $400-450 on.
