dude, seriously, all you need to do is work out how much you can afford, and then read some reviews based on that number. I have a nvidia gfx 6200 AGP with 256mb of ram. It cost £40 (around $70) and I can play BF2 just fine. Those super top end graphics card you see... there a rip off. Something around $100 - $150 will see you just fine, paying more than just is not really worth it unless bragging rights are important to you. Then use the money saved for another hard disk.

What do you think about this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814150118

by the way i have sli should i run this in sli because i dont think 450w psu will take this in sli mode.

I think this is the best for my budget and its extremly fast!

SLI/Crossfire is even more of a fucking joke IMHO... Read some reviews, google like crazy, LEARN why this is a better card than others. If it is, buy it and enjoy it. But think about more RAM and Storage space, because while a fast graphics card is good today, more RAM and HD's will be a better deal in the long run.

I take Vako's side on this issue. I'll never spend more than $200 on a video card. After that it's just paying for the name. And remember, today's $400 card is tomorrows $200 card. :)

this coming from the guy running an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro hacked up to 9700

icky darren! :P ATi sux0rz a$$ :P hehe nVidia!
