Default Re: Budget video card

I think HD2900GT performs slightly better than X1950pro

However, for $20 more you can get 8800GS 384MB and it is better than both
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88SFDF4 GeForce 8800GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

And it is a single slot as well

Beat me to it, but yeah and whats $20 anyways? You can bum that off someone and pay them back later, and the card will go a long way, compared to the x1950 or anything else posted here.
