$200 graphics?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a graphics card that is around 200 bucks for a computer that I am upgrading. I was about to buy a 7900GS but I was wondering what you guys think. I kinda have a bias to nvidia but Im open to suggestions from ATI too.

If the 7900GS is a good card for the price, I was looking at these two http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143070. I was leaning towards that XFX becuase of the mem/clock speeds.

You could get a decent 7600gt for that or a x1950 pro (maybe a little bit more cash)

For about $230, maybe less, you can get a 7900GT so see if you can go up that much.

So is a 7900 GT is better than a 7900 GS that is clocked a little faster than the GT?
