HELP eith video card purchase...

Hello. As I am new here, I would like you to suggest me a graphics card suitable for my system.
Athlon 64 3500+ Venice
768MB RAM
NFORCE 3
Hard disks 160+ 40GB
DVD-RW,DVD-ROM, 8xFans
PSU 400w medium quality
Ati Radeon 9600/256mb.
Gigabyte K8NSC-939
So, I would like to buy a new video card, in order to imprve my system.
I would like to know how many pixel pipelines and vertex shaders the X800GT, X700PRO, 6600GT and 6800LE models have, and what kind of memory (in the AGP slot).
Is there any card you would suggest to me?
I don't wat to spend more than 220€ (200$ I think)
Are there in any of the above models (except the 6800LE) any unlockable pipelines?
I just mention that I am interested in overclocking ths system, but please do not suggest me a card that the 400W PSU won't go with.....

Depending on what core (R420 I think) the X800GT is carrying, those cards have high successful unlocking rates for the extra pipes they carry.

It's either that or the 6800LE...
When unlocked, I'm gonna say the XGT will out preform, but then again, I just woke up...not thinking quite right. However the X does not support SM 3.0...so theirs a downside to having more frames.

A 400w PSU would be fine for any card, but it needs to be of good quality.
