  1. my friend wants to buy a new graphics card but is only willing to spend a 150 bucks. I've narrowed it down to a couple they are:

    any refurbished 6600gt from newegg
    a refurbished 6800 from newegg
    or any new radeon 9800pro 256mb

    i know the nvidias are a little bit stronger but not sure about buying a refurbished one, any input would help.

    well between those three i think u can go for the 6800 as it will outperform the the other two easily
    between i dont know whether it is good to for a refurbished card

    so the best advice will be to go for the ATI card as the performance will be good enough as well u get the satisfaction of going for a new card. :grinthumb
