$100 dollar cards you're lookin at either the 9600pro, 6200, or the fx5500 (out of those, i'd get the 9600pro)

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...51&cid=999.821 $90 9600pro (there are cheaper ones, just make sure memory bandwidth is 128bit)


if you go a little bit over 100, you could get the 9600XT or the 6600. the 9800pro would be a good value as well but i can't seem to find any...

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...95&cid=999.821 $119 6600
http://www.anitec.ca/?mode=product_d...d=1346&mcid=24 $116 9600xt


but for best value, i'd get the 6600gt for $149

The 9800SE would be a good card, then flash it to a 9800pro

Lord AnthraX,
What do you mean who made it? And no there is no fan on it..i just put a exhaust fan under it...to help it out. I got 40 fps out of it with everything on low in cs:s. haha It was a good cheap card for me.
