Currently building a computer for a friend that wants to mainly play Dark Messiah, and possibly some other newer games. <br />
<br />
Was wondering what kind of settings would be good on this card:<br />

He wanted something to do atleast medium settings, at an ok screen size. My 6800gs does medium to high settings all around, but I haven't been following up on video cards since I had to buy mine. Anybody who has the game and card or similar card want to fill me in on what type of settings you can play it at?<br />
<br />
Ohyea, it'll be running with an athlon 64 3700+ s939, 1gb of ddr400 ram, nforce 4 mobo.<br />
<br />
If there are any other cards under 150$ that would be better please point me towards them.

I used to have that card and it is quite good. I think there is an X1650XT coming out soom though.<br />

This is nice. $144 after rebate <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> and it'll own the X1650.<br />
<br />
As for messiah settings, should be able to max it at 1024 at least.

My x850xt plows through messiahs demo like nothing. A 1600xt is very close to equivalent to my x850 and might i add, its underclocked due to PSU issues soo you should be fine with the x1650 but I recommend getting that x1800. Will do just fine

I think you should get an X1800 just because they are pretty cheap right now IMO. Here is one for 145 AR+shipping. And its a single slot cooler also. That is a huge plus.<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102021" target="_blank">Link</a>

I have two of these. They are OC'd to x1600xt speeds and have GDDR3 ram. Pretty cheap if you ask me and do a decent job. However the x1800 I think could in fact beat two but not sure.<br><br>
