I still use a 9550 :*(

Send me them next time.. :P

Also, if he's upgrading to a 9550, he would have AGP... so if he has AGP, then this would be a good 100 dollar card for him.. It's open box though.. :|

Don't get a 9550, unless you want to be like me and run Prey on 600x480 or whatever resolution with all sliders on low setting. I'm on a 9600. A friend of mine was running an x850XT a year ago and he was doing ok with it, but I think he got rid of it.

It depends on what you want out of a card... Post a link to a site you can order from and we can help you pick a card that might suit you better.

if you buy local then I would suggest something along the lines of:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150200

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143045

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161032

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131010

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121020

Just to name a few... and the links are just so you can look at them...

you can compare some of them at:

http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=202&card2=382

But these are MUCH better than a 9550 and will out perform it 10 fold...

if you buy online then you more than likely can... but since you don't then your going to pay the extra price.
