    Hey i'm gonna buy me a new vidcard and first i wanna know like what are the best geforces in the II, III and IV series? I'm not such an extreme gamer but a good graphics card would be nice, i haven't got the money for a GF4 Ti series..that's for sure, but what about the GF3 series? are they any good?

    Id rather by the radeon 9000 pro or the radeon 8500. They produce better graphics and video than the geforce's - if thats your concern.

    Id say go buy a Geforce4 Ti4400, the gainward cards are especially good with alot of extra features others dont't have.

    Also Leadtek & Visiontek have good cards. Or if you can wait go for the new ATI 9700, as its beating the GF4 Ti4600, according to reviews. Id assume the final retail 9700 (released in Sept) will be the same.

    right now all costs are going down..

    my card cost me 134 dollars incl shipping and everything and it is the retail 8500.. NOT the LE..

    I have seen the 64mb version of the 4200 online for almost as much... remember the 64mb 4200 has higher core clock speed than the 128mb version... so that or the 8500/9000pro series are not bad investments...

    all depends...

    would not buy a g3 series unless you get an upper level ti500

    Good call Sazar :) (about getting Ti500 or better) prices are going down, I've seen Ti4200's for £130 max. Personally I wouldnt get one, but to upgrade what more could you ask for, (apart from salary increase, nice weather, drop dead gorgeous women, alcohol..)!!!!!!!!!! :D
