  1. I have around a $200 budget for a video card. I currently have a geforce 7900 gs but i want something better. Im looking for a glossy sharp image that looks like hd quality.

    What is a good ms rate for lcd monitors ( i play online games)
    What card would you recommend for 200 bucks
    should the geforce 7900 gs give off a glossy image ( could my Acer AL1916w be a ****ty monitor?)

    What would you recommend for a hdmi quality picture??????

    A 4-5ms response time is good enough, but lower is better.
    The 8800GT is the king in the sub-$200 price bracket.
    And no, the card is okay.
    Lastly, bear in mind that picture quality also depends on the resolution you view it at. A game played at 1600x1200 looks noticeably smoother than when it's at 1024x768. Dittto for video.

    Agreed with Rage.

    8800 GT 512mb is the best for around that price, it's a little more but its worth it because it murders everything below 200$

    I was actually talking about the 256MB variant of the 8800GT. I found one here for $160 after rebates. Also, if you're interested, this would be the better choice for about $30 more.

    A 7900gs is not a terrible card - if you're looking for a glossy image I think you might need to look at your monitor. Even on-board video can produce that with a glossy screen.
