Vid Cards Opinions

  1. Hiyas. I'm currently running a Dell XPS 400 (please don't laugh) and am looking at upgrading my video card. I have a 256MB PCI Express x16 nVidia GeForce 6800 atm and I'm looking to increase performance, specifically increasing FPS with the new game Age of Conan. I just ordered 2GB more RAM to increase from 2 to 4. Any ideas what would be recommended as well as somewhat affordable. By affordable I'd like to stay around the $100 range and might be tempted to go to $200. Thanks for the input!

    Either the 9600GT or 8800GT...

    Thanks. I've seen the 8800GT brought up a few times and it seems to be what I am leaning towards at this time.

    Aye, the 9600GT can be had for between $112 and $120 on Newegg at the moment, it's performance is close enough to the 8800GT that the savings are well justified.

    Both are great cards though - you won't be disappointed regardless of your choice :).
