For $90-100 you could either gtx 450 or HD 6750 which both perform just as well as the 9800. In addition you will also get dx10 or dx 11 with the latter two cards vs dx9 only with the 9800.

If you have FPS problem with lots of units on screen, you should check your CPU too. What is your CPU?

If you don't know what power supply you have, I'd spend a bit more and buy Radeon 7750. The Radeon 7750 does not require you to have a good power supply.

Radeon 7750 beats all of them.
Radeon 7750 cost is $110.

If you have a decent power supply with 1 PCI-E power plug at least, you can buy a Radeon 6770, which also beats all of them, and can be found for $90 after rebates
