What video card should I get? I haven't been keeping up on processors or video cards since ATI Radeon 9800XT was THE card to get.

I'm looking to dive in to gaming again. Recently been on a Macbook Pro.

I own a few games already (older):
- Starcraft 2
- Diablo 2/LOD
- Lego World Online (or something, it's my son's game)
- A few shooters, etc.


Planning on getting a few new games though.
-SkyRim
- Dungeon Siege III
- Battle Field 3

I want no issues with ghosting, I want to run everything on ULTRA HIGH 1680x1200.

I have about $200.

Now, I know I am contradicting myself here. Price cap with requirements of Ultra High, but I want the best for the money. I'm willing to spend more if the performance boost is worth the delta.
 
I say AMD cos you can run 3 to 6 screens off of one card. nVidia limit you to 2 per card :/
 
Thanks, I'm going to look in to all these suggestions. Man, it's been a while! I forgot about NewEgg entirely!
 
Check the Tom's Hardware site Charts section for comparative benchmark results. As always with Tom's, look at the pcitures (charts) and ignore their recomendations.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
