Whats your hobby??
If GAMES is what you want it for, Go with the 64meg DDR VIVO, i got mine for $159, but that was at a retail store a month ago, you can probably get it for like $130... the trade off in game speed with a VE is about 1/3 slower...
For $100 you can get a KYRO 2 based card that is actually a little faster than my 64meg Radeon... 2d not as clean and no VIVO but kick ass games for the $$$
