    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.

    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
