help picking a new vid card
I'm currently running a GeForce 4 MX440. yea, damn old. I'm thinking about getting a Radeon 9800pro, and theyh ave one for ~210
can anyone show me a better card to buy at around that price? I'm running a P4 3.2ghz w/ HT on a Soyo P4VTE with a 350watt power supply. No video cards over 3.3v either (should I even be worried?)

The 9800PRO is a great card allough some people say the Nvidia 6600GT is better, ive no experiance so can't comment on the nvidia.

Intel I5 750 @ 2.67 Ghz, 4gb GSkill DDR3 1600, GB P55M-UD2, XFX Radeon 5850. , Seagate Constellation ES 1 TB, Seasonic Gold 620w, Win Vista Ultimate, Toshiba 32" HDTV
E6750 Core 2 Duo, 2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800, GB P35C-DS3R MB, ATI Radeon X1950XT, Seagate 7200.9 320GB, Win XP Pro SP2, Enermax Liberty 500w

I would recommend a 9700pro. You can get one for $175 from newegg. Performance wise, I do not think you would see much difference, except maybe on benchmarking score only.

if you can get a 9700PRO then thats great too i think i heard they were only 15% slower than a 9800PRO and i would think you could overclock them to 5-10% slower but the 9800PRO overclocks too

I would recomment the 6600GT AGP. Exactly on your budget and considerably faster than a 9800 Pro.
Search for "6600GT AGP" at www.newegg.com
