  1. I'm going to be ordering parts for a new computer soon but I'm not sure what kind of Video Card to get. I would like one for gaming but I am not sure which one to choose. I would like it to be in the Price Range from $200-$300 (Max I might go will probably be $350, also I would rather the card be manufactured by nVIDIA but I am willing to hear what other good cards are out there) The video card must be Pci-Express. Thanks!

    Sounds like a smell a 7900GT in your near future! hehe.

    Honestly, the 7900GT is a great card and fits in your under $250 budget.

    My best advice though would be to WAIT just a week or two for the 7950 to be truly "full" released (it's avail, but the new NV line is being retargetted soon). ATI and NVIDIA are aggressively pricing their new line of cards (X1950 256mb is DIRT cheap) and this will likely re-launch the 7950 at a new price point (cheaper).. as well as likely result in a big drop for the other 7900 series.

    Thanks for the advice. I might be getting the 7900GT I can't wait another 1 or 2 weeks. :D
