I just bought a GeForce 6600GT.  It only has 128 mb RAM but darn it is fast!  It cost about $200.  It was quite a trade up from my old card (5900) and plays every game I can throw at it with all details and 1024x768 resolution.

Got money to burn? Buy this:

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102492

ATI All-In-Wonder X800 XT 100-714200 Video Card.

Not only is it a fantastic graphic card, but it supports TV in as well for when you're too lazy to get up and move to your living room to watch TV. biggrin

I have a BFG 6800gt oc, it`s a great card. Check it out. It also comes with a lifetime warranty. I`m running it on a p4 3.0 ghz, and 1 gb of ddr. Great performance, but not cheap. http://www.bfgtech.com/

Beer goggles, I ALWAYS laugh when I see that image"PWNED". Good stuff. You don`t happen to have a wallpaper of that in 1024x768? :wink: . Back on topic...this card is sweet though. First BFG card ever, NOT the last. That`s for sure. So far, I`ve had a really good experience with this card, and the tech support. The lifetime warranty doesn`t hurt either.
