What is the best card for under $100 ???

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So, as some of you know, I am building a budget PC that I can play Fallout 3 and a couple of non-demanding games on.

-Fallout 3
-Left 4 Dead
-Star Wars: Republic Commando
-Halo: Combat Evolved
-Guild Wars
-Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos
-Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne
-Half Life 2

Not a huge demanding list there. Those are all the ones I have and plan to get. I lost a lot of my games somehow... So what card con do this for under $100?

9500GT gives you great performance for the price. I bought one for my sisters computer and tested it out on several games including Crysis and got respectable frame rates on medium quality.

I'd say HD4830, edges out 8800gt in most cases. Going to buy one myself soon.
