Building a new computer and Im on a strict budget. Im limiting the video card to $100. I found an 8500 125mb card for $99. I had a Rage Fury in my first computer and ATI really sucked when it came to drivers but Ive been reading thet they have gotten it together in that area. I was looking at gForce 3 cards but they seem to have gone up in price. The Xabre 400 Pro with 128mb is $100 and looks good but Im hesitant to try a new product. Thanks

I love mine.

I'd say go for it, it's really a nice card and blows any equivalent-priced GF3 out of the water.

I'd also say stick with nVIDIA or ATi, just for the sake of compatibility.
