i need something like this for my 350D:
Sigma Zoom Telephoto 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Zoom Macro Super II
i was thinking about paying around $200-300 for a lense, so is the above mentioned lense a good choice or are there better alternatives in my price range?
I want to it to be not less than 200mm maybe even 300mm. I'll be using it for mostly wildlife shooting. The only other lense i have is the kit lense 18-55mm.

The Sigmalens is quite good (make sure you get the APO or APO DG version), especially for $200-$220. The Tamron 70-300 4-5.6 LD Macro is also quite good (and only $200), though in my experience it is a bit more likely to exhibit chromatic aberration in bright subjects.

All the following shots were taken with the Tamron:
