i got the nvidia evga geforce 7600gt and its excellent so get that if you want.

It plays Counter strike source on high settings and need for speed carbon on high settings.

Don't know if your gaming but thats good or save your cash and get the 7900gt.

I'd recommend the 8600gts or save an extra 50 and get an 8800gts, its 259 minus the rebate, and is big improvement over a $160 card
