Okay, my budget is $120-128 shipped. I live in NJ so add 7% tax to the price without shipping.
My rig is as follows:
430 Watt Antec Earthwatts PSU.
Intel C2D Wolfdale E7200 @ 2.53GHz
Gigabyte EP35-DS3L (i think lol)
2x1 GB PNY Ram DDR2
Firewire PCI Card
LG DVD Burner
Excelstor 250 GB HD
Vista Home Premium x64
22" Acer LCD
Pretty much it...
I went with the crappy graphics card when I built my rig fully expecting to get another one in 2-3 months...it's now been 5 months. I hate the card because I can't experience games to full potential.
***I need a graphics card that I would not have to change my PSU for***
I have been looking at the ATI HD4830 by Sapphire on Newegg which is $119 shipped.
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
I wish it came with a bundled game like COD4 or something, but that's okay. If you have any other suggestions...let me know.
I am willing to do small overclocks via overclocking software for small performance gains if necessary.
