7900gs is my vote... Even nvidia agrees

sorry this got burried and you didn't get help

http://www.nvidia.com/content/licens...glish_whql.exe

click on the number 2 and it says so... i just saw this when downloading the graphics drivers (the link will prompt you to download something, just click no)

brutal reformat really.... a few errors in the hard drive and stuff

hrmm x1900xt is what i'd go with, they're only about 300 dollars, not too much more than a 7900gt.. and shows a marginal amount of better performance

7600GTs aren't too bad either if you don't wanna spend so much.

The "best bang for your buck" = the most frames per second per dollar.

In which case I'd would think its the 7600GT ... TomsHardware did a test for CPUs that gave the most frames per second per dollar and it was the Athlon 64 3000+, but I don't know if they have done it for video cards.
