Default Need A Cheap Video Card

Hey, I was looking to upgrade my current video card (radeon 9200) to something a bit better that can handle most games. Can anyone recomend a PCI Express video card for under $130 Canadian including shipping, thanks.

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA E-GEFORCE 7600GT KO 580MHZ PCI-E 256MB 128BIT 1.5GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out Video Card - 256-P2-N554-AX In Canada.

Isn't the 9200, an AGP graphics card?

lol...That's the same exact one, I suggested to you, earlier. But yes...that is a decent card, and meets your price too.
