Advice

Alright im gonna upgrade from my Raidion X1650 its out of date and doesnt keep up with todays games.
I am stuck and I am not sure which card to get.

I saw the XFX 8800GT on new egg for $150 and i was thinking of getting that one but i want other peoples advice. I dont want to pay over $250 for a graphics card so what would be the best card for under $250? Please let me know the best bang for buck under $250 and best in general for under $250.

The 8800 GTS (G92) is probably your best choice. It's just slightly better than the 8800 GT and is still under $250. It also has better cooling. I'd also go with EVGA as they have step up the option.

Thankyou! read reviews and everything and it looks great!

Thanks again!

The only thing is im probably gonna go with XFX ONLY because it comes with COD4 and i dont really plan on changing this Video card anytime soon

Yes, for under 250, the GTS is an awesome choice.

However, offtopic. Add your specs to your signature, it helps people to help you . Go to User CP, Add system, and fill out everything you know.
