Iv been looking for a new card but I only have about $200 for it and a new power supply, I need something to replace the crap stock one I have. I just dont know what would be the best buy for the money. Any thoughts?

Doesn't look like you do any real heavy gaming, so I say one of these cards, and the PSU in this fs thread.

it shouldn't matter that much which manufacturer produces the card, but I'm sure some here will mention manufacturers to steer clear of. Just read through some of the reviews too, so you will no what known problems there are or might be.

Well um, here is a card I'm realy thinking about buying, it only had one review but my friend has one and he loves it. I just want to see if its a good buy or if i should try something else. If this isnt where I should be asking this stuff just tell me.
BTW, does it matter if I have PCI E 2.0 or just regular PCI E?
Thanks

This is a good deal form the Deal section....XFX 8800Gt w/Zalman cooler. $129 AR, that will leave plenty for a PSU, I suggest 500 watts by a reputable company.... Siverstone, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic, etc.

That's a great card but that doesn't leave much money for a decent PSU.
