Update/recommendation on graphics cards around the $200 mark?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm helping a friend put together a gaming PC and would like some recommendations for a graphics card. I haven't been keeping up that much on what's out there now, so if you guys can fill me in, that would be awesome. We're looking for one around the $200 range. Thank you!

Awesome! I forgot all about Tom's Hardware GPU guide.
I was looking at the GTX 460 for $159.99. What other cards are you all happy with? The monitor he plans on using is under 22".

If you can swing the $20, a gtx 560 ti, or 6950 would be good.
