  1. Hello..Im looking to buy a Pci Express card for gaming.Im looking for something in the range of $100-$150..Im sure i cant get nothing that is great for this price but i need to know what are the best cards around this price range? I prefer Nvidia but if a ATI card will give me more preformance then i would get it. As long as i can play some newer games on medium settings or so i would be happy..Thanks

    I will second Ritwiks recommendation, the odds are you will need a new power supply to go with this card though.

    You can go with the one ritwik suggested or you can also check EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX at newegg.com its for 159.99. Good luck!

    @ $145 the 4870 is a much better buy... plus you get 1GB of GDDR5 memory :)

    deazy86 the 9800 gtx isnt even in the same league of performance as the 4870 next time you try to help someone dont recommend an out of date card that cost more than a top end new card lol
