So I am searching for a video card for my girlfriend's dell 4600 because her intel extreme is too crappy. She basically will only be playing the Sims 2, but I want it to be able to run smoothly, at a rate that makes the game actually enjoyable. So I am searching on eBay for a semi old graphics card for her PC. I read good reviews about the Nvidia 4600 ti but I had an issue w/ the specific one I ordered. I was looking at the BFG site and I can't tell what series of nvidias are better than the other (i.e. it the fx5200 is better than a geforce4 4600ti). So just wondering, what are some of the really good video cards that are just a tad outdated or are just a good value? Just looking for a card that I will be able to pick up on ebay or newegg for around $50. I figured with all of the great cards coming out these days to run games like FEAR I could find a card capable of the sims2 for a decent price. Just looking for recomendations of what cards were the good ones. Some of the ones I was looking at were the fx5700 ultra, sapphire 9600 pro, asus radeon 9550ge, so far I am open to any recomendations. Also, her dell 4600 i think only has a 250w or a 300w power supply and the card must be agp.
