New Card for $220

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am going to buy a new video card on christmas and i was wondering what would be the best video card for about $220 i can't spend more than $220. I was thinking about the 6800GS what do you guys think? or should I go with ATI? I mainly play CS:S and BF2. BTW has to be PCI

PCI or PCI-E? as of right now the 6800GS only comes in PCI-E and if it has to be PCI you will not beable to get a card anywhere near the performance of the 6800GS

if this is your mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491

then you can get a PCI-E card so you should go for the 6800GS
