cliche video card question
I have finally ordered my new motherboard and started the upgrade process, bit the bullet so to speak, now I'm pondering on what vid card I need...
I am not a fanboi, either Nvidia or ATI suggestions are welcome in this matter.
I would like DirectX 10, and I would like to stay under 70 dollars shipped, it needs to play older games like HL2, Doom 3, and so forth on high settings and new games like Crysis on low settings at least.
I was thinking the 8500GT realm. I have no idea what a comparable DX10 ATI card would be though... Just trying to find the best bang for the buck.
The new build will consist of
2x1Gb sticks of Geil DDR2
Biostar mobo 945GC MICRO 775
and my current IDE DVD drive, HDD and PSU
