Recommended Posts

Greetings and hello!

 

Im looking for a good and cheap graphics card. Looking to spend no more than 150. At first i was looking at the Radeon 9600XT, but now im leaning more towards the cheaper GeForce FX 5800. So, whats the best graphics card for under 150 with the best performance:cost ratio? Thanks!

just save up for a 9800pro, it right NOW has the best price:performance ratio. but, if you MUST get a card NOW, get a refurbed 9700pro from newegg.com, its about 140 and puts the 9600XT to shame :)

Ditto. Just save the extra $50 up and get a 9800 Pro. You'll thank us later.

Well, actually you would probably only have to save up 20 - 30 bucks and then in a month or two, the 9800 Pro will have dropped that much. With X800s and 6800s becoming less rare, the prices on old generation GPUs is going to drop also. My advice: hang in there and watch the 9800 Pro drop in price and once it has, pounce.
