I have a budget of $200 for a video card... I need something that will last a long time and that will run fear, cod2, halo and bf2142 on good settings so that I can play them very smoothly.
I've been an ati fan but whatever fits my needs for 200 i will take
(newegg link plz)

Get a Conroe...


I suggest a 1900XT (Aren't they about $200?)

AGP or PCI-E?

I vote for the Saphire x1950pro, egg link here - 199$ It's performance is not far from the x1900XT, actually they are very very close.
It's pretty cool, silent stock fan and plenty performance. The x1900XT consumes quite a bit more and has a noisy stock fan.

If you prefer nVidia you can take a Gigabyte 7900GS for 195$ cooled with Zalman vf900. A bit poorer performance than the x1950pro and lower image quality but it OCs more than the ATI. If you aim for records this is your card, but for a day-to-day use I recommend the ATI.

Eh, why is the X1950PRO so expensive, even if the rates are insane right now?

I can get that for like $185 on current rates (5.65), $110 on standard rates (7.5 DKK per USD)

X1950pro would be good but if you want nvidia there was a deal on a 7900GS at bestbuy.com but they're sold out right now. It was listed at 199.99 with 50$ instant off, second time it's been out of stock since I seen the 50$ off. The first time it came back in stock the 50$ off was still going so I'd imagine when it comes back again it'll be the same ~ can't say for sure.
