if you could spend $150 I'd recommend the HIS 256mb hd3850

but since you can't I guess the best you can get is the x1950pro

isnt the 3850 slightly faster? i would say go with the 8800gs if it isnt looks liek a nice card what im worried about with them is ram problems liek that of the 7900gt. had a litle dinky heat sink like that.

the hd3850 512mb is faster than the 384mb, but the 256mb is not (which is its competitor in this price range)
