    I am currently using the below mentioned V/C, however as more games enter the market I am falling farther behind and missing out on all the games' glory. I am stuck running games at bare minimum most times. I am not a huge gamer where I constantly play games.

    However, I do have a tendency to try new games and there are the few times where I do get that addicition and nothing sucks more than not being able to play a game at its full potential.

    I don't want a top of the line card as we are now approaching a new round of cards to the market, however I want something that can hold me over for quite awhile with new games coming to market.

    Any suggestions?

    A GeforceFX 5900XT gives a very good price/performance ratio - outperforms the 9600xt more often than not, and scores 1000 more than the 9600xt in 3dmark03; not that that means anything anymore though :)

    well here a good quality 9600xt (not some gecube/gexcube/see how different stores call it differently?/crap) costs around $275, and the 5900xt is around $325. i think its $50 well spent.

    the price actually varied alot more than that when i looked at a few of my wholesale suppliers.
