Budget gaming card (nevermind)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not really sure if I want to buy one or not yet, but I've looked at these:

Sapphire 3870 512mb GDDR3 - $80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102752
Sapphire 3850 512mb - $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=14-102-715
EVGA 9600GT 512mb - $80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130424

I miss the $35 8800GS, heck even the $50 ones. Now they're $70.

Edit: Forget it, I'll probably get the 4870 then reuse the 8800GT. I'm not sure if it's really worth the money to get a stopgap card now then get a 4870 with the new monitor.
