Can anyone help me choose a good PCIe card for below $200
(ATI or NVIDIA)?
There you go, its not sli ready, but its still a good card
Eww, yuk, it isn't even a 6600 GT. Here's my counter offer:
Note the 6600 family only has a 128 bit wide bus which slows it down at >1024 x 768 and when using high AA and AI settings. Still the best bang for the buck in the mid range cards.
Or you can get the ATI X800 with a 256 bit memory interface for $20 more, but still within your budget.
The X800 is slower at lower resolutions and with no AA & AI, but pulls ahead when you start using higher quality settings in games due to its wider memory interface (256 vs 128).
Its $210 and its a refurb so maybe you wouldnt want it
Thanks guys i'll check these out
will all of these handle BF2?
And AGP. :dead:
Thats not what the card was yesterday when i posted it :|.
The 6600GT is a great way to go.
Oh and I have that Leadtek 6800GT and it's very nice. It's like $258 new.
The 9800 pro handles BF2 fine close to full detail on my machine and the 6600GT is running BF2 fine on a buddies machine, both at 1024x768. If you want to go to higher rez those 2 cards might get slow. The other cards I listed should run it even better than the 9800 PRO and the 6600GT.
I've got an eVGA 6600GT. It runs BF2 at the high settings at 1024x768 with no problems. It's $169 + shipping at newegg.com The link is
I would highly recommend this card to anyone.
