What card to buy?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy a new graphics card, somewhere between 200-250...It can be any graphics card, but I want your guys opinion on which on I should buy and where to buy it at the cheapest price. I want a kick ass card, for a fairly reasonable price...

Thanks

I'd also like it to be a good overclocker

The X850XT would probably be the best bet:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102505
Likely to overclock well. Pretty much the best AGP card about, until the 7800GS is released.

lol I like how the guy who last posted a review for the X850XT said "Pros: Perfect with F.E.A.R. on maximum"

yet the Geforce 7800GTX with 512mb can only run F.E.A.R. at 36fps (soft shadows enabled)

the 6800gs is the way to go it's pretty much taking the place of the 6800gt and i think they are using the nv40 chips in it so the possibility of unlocking the extra
4 pipes is there also

the X850XT will run FEAR on max, but with 1 gig ... the 7800GTX will run it much more than 36 fps and ether the CPU was limiting it or the RAM caused real crappy performance.
