You already have it. Next best would be an HD 4850 or GTS 250 at $120.

In b4 Americans thinking they are the center of the universe.
Instead of a graphics card, look for an X-Fi Xtreme Gamer soundcard. You can't get anything better in the graphics sector for 100 Canadian.
I dont need a sound card. lol.


Do you think I could get a good used card? The 8800GT is only in my case for another two days or so, and il be stuck with the old 8600GTS.

Well if you aren't going to be keeping the 8800GT then a 9600GT would be your next best bet.

8xxx and 9xxx nvidia gpus are the same lol just re named basicly.

you can look at the For sale section of OCN. ive seen some ati 4830s on there for $100 range. wait a few days and you will find a good deal. i sold my ATI 4870 512mb for about $75
my desktop pc has a 9600GT and I can vouch it's a great great card for its price.
can max out all source games (L4D, TF2, etc) at 1680x1050, can run crysis 1440x900 at high, etc.
but you should really go for a used GTS250.
Look for a 4850 or 4830, those would be your best bet in that price range. Used cards can range from $50 to 80 for either one.
look on newegg i've seen the GTS250 by pinnacle for 89 bucks!
