New graphics card help. ($200 budget)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I no nothing about graphics cards and I need one for my current PC. I have an ASUS P4P800 board that has an APG slot and no PCI-E. The card needs to be decent for gamming.(Oblivion,NFSMW, ect...) I won't have much more than $200 to blow until after Christmas when i plan a new build. So what are some good choices?

TY

Are the 7800GS's under 200 yet?

Im currently writing some sort of FAQ on how far you can push a 7800GS. I'll be done as soon as I can go to Radio Shack and get some variable resistors.

Look for a used 6800GT/Ultra

Anything above that will be overkill.

Or get a 7600 and volt mod, both are very good options. You would be happy either way. Should note though that legoman's suggestions wouldnt cost extra money, where as the v-mod does cost around 40 dollars to do (circuit writer + aftermarket hsf).

Is this the right one?

NEW RADEON X800 GTO 256MB AGP VIDEO CARD

I found it new on Ebay for cheap; so i'm not sure that it's the right one.
