Need a video card

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I need a video card to play all the latest games at least in high settings (dont care about crysis settings) but I dont want to spend lots of money preferably under $200 but I may go up to $250. I would like to be able to play any game with my 22" monitor at high resolution. I may want to try AA and all that stuff since with my previous cards that wasn't really an option. Also, please let me know if I would need a new power supply.

9600GT best for under $200 in the nvidia area.

EDIT: Wow, looks like prices are dropping like a rock, go for that 8800GTS (G92)

The G92 is the newer (and better) core revision of the GTS. It is a big performance increase over the G80. You want the G92 version.

Get a Radeon HD 3850. Very nice card and performs well.

It's about 200$ HERE"S THE LINK

No need to worry about enough juice from your power supply.

Also the HD 3870 is AMAZING if you're willing to spend about 220$. It get's a bout 5-15 FPS better then the 8800GT.
