Thread Starter 
Well,I'am on budget limits now.Bills and family condition's have changed.
My new PC,has a 6150LE installed in it.And I'am seeking a low-budget card that'll play these games:
1.)Counter-Strike Source
2.)Soldier of Fortune II
3.)RED ORCHESTRA
4.)Wolfenstein:Enemy Territory
5.)Never Winter Nights II
6.)BF2
7.)Madden NFL 2007
8.)NBA LIVE 07
9.)HL2 Deathmatch
10.)Oblivion
11.)FABLE: The Lost Chapters

Here's my PC,that I just purchased: HP Pavilion a1430n Media Center

My budget is tight $75-110.00
And I've got 2GB of ram,instead of 1GB.I installed more ram.

Have a look at the eVGA 7600GTS it's basically a downclocked 7600GT, you can overclock it to make up the different quite easily:
$120USD - $10Rebate = $110AR

It will play those games on medium-high settings.
Madden07 and NBA Live 07 will play maxed out for sure, since even my X800GTO does.

Well,One of them will do for now.Around christmas time.I'll get my 7900GS
The X1300 & X1600 look okay.But,almost every game I own is NVIDIA based.Wouldn't that be a big problem?

7600GT if possible. If not, get the 7600GST or 7600GS.

I don't really like ATI's midrange offerings right now. Out of the ones posted neither will do well. A X1300 wouldn't have any use for 512MB of memory and if the X1600 posted had ATI's version of "Steal memory from your computer so it runs like ****."

there's no such thing as "nvidia based"..

they get sponsors, then they put the logo on the box/splash screens..

It's all the same.
