  1. alright so im building a new system this july, and im pretty sure im gonna go with a board that has pci-e x16 (i can't find a decent AGP 4x/8x card out there in my price range). I'm on a really tight budget and i dont game that often, so basically i just want the most bang for my buck. here are the contenders so far:


    ASUS Geforce 6200 - $94 on newegg
    ASUS Radeon X700 LE - $106 on newegg
    ASUS Geforce 6600 - $122 on newegg

    I've been reading this comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2238&p=1

    which has the x700 (and im pretty sure they said they didnt use the pro version) killing the other cards. well, lemme know what you think, thank ya

    if you don't game then I wouldn't get a hot card.

    i game sometimes and wouldnt mind spending around 100 bucks for a card. i asked for an opinion on these cards, not an opinion of whether i need one or not
