Default dilema from my last post(upgrading graphicscard)

so at first i totally thought i could afford a graphics card around the 180-200 mark...

well now the case is do i need it...and no i cant really afford it. so im kinda impatient and was wondering....


ive been doing a lot of looking around and found a few cards, few in the GTS 260 or 400(only) range that werent that bad of price( correct me if im wrong on the 400 price range cant remember) but i saw a few around 90-100 with tax around 114 or so..


can anyone recommend me a card around the 200, low low 400 series that will be good on graphics ( i dont care about how loud the fan is) but i really would hate it to crap out on me because of overheating.

thnx again guys. you all here are a lot of help.

There are some GTS 450 for $120 before tax. I'm not too sure if you should go lower than this.
