Default 150$ Gpu

For 150 dollars, what is the best video card I can get.
NO MORE THAN 150 DOLLARS. No "BUT WITH 5 MORE" junk, the highest I can go is 150. Also, I'm not doing rebates..

My options are like... 7600gt, x1800gto, 7800gt... I guess I could wait too, till the x1900gt or something else is dropped to a decent price... I was looking at a 7900gs but they raised in price again..

(Open box) X1900GT

Still sounds like a great deal for just $129.99

Definitely doesn't get better than that for under $150, new.

Well, I want the best performance possible for 150, so I don't think I'm going to get a 7600gt or 6800gs. I think I might get the x1900gt if I have the chance...

If you want new look for a x1800gto from HIS (if you can find one) or Sapphire. Unlock to 16 pipes and bump up the clocks. Pretty much all HIS ones unlock and overclock great and most sapphires do also.

My HIS x1800gto does 730 on the mem and gpu and gets around 10,000 in 3dmark05.
