Gamers will often find that there is a wide range of graphics cards to choose from, especially when buying a mid-range product that sits below the $200 price mark. However the trouble comes in determining just how much they need to spend in order to play the games they love and then reserve a bit of legroom for the titles to come.
The sub-$200 graphics card market is particularly strong at the moment, with products such as the Radeon HD 4850 and GeForce 9800 GTX+ existing well within this price bracket. There is also the Radeon HD 4830 and GeForce 9800 GT graphics cards priced at around $120. Those wishing to spend even less have the Radeon HD 4670 at just $80 or the GeForce 9500 GT at around $65.
So if you plan to spend less than $200 on a current generation graphics card, which is the best value option today?
