It is a very very low end card, and it's generally not good for gaming. You can probably play the older games, such as Starcraft. But certainly not something recent. And when I say "not", I mean not acceptable performance.

SLI is without a doubt, pointless with such low end cards. The cards worth SLIing, are high end, and that's if you're playing on a big resolution.

I'll assume dlls means US dollars.

ClubIT Product - MSI Geforce 8800GT OC 512MB 256bit GDDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 HDCP & SLI Ready Video Card Retail NX8800GT-T2D512E OC

here's a MSI 8800GT for $300

if you don't want to go that close to the budget

VisionTek - ATI RADEON HD3870 Graphics Card - 900202

just found this on a different thread

oooor this will satisfy most anything you'd want to play on a budget

ClubIT Product - PowerColor Radeon HD 3850 256MB 256bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP & CrossFire Ready Video Card Retail AX3850256MD3-H

To Get List in order of priority.

1. Nvidia 8800GT Graphics card (SLi ready)
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDF4 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

2. Corsair (SLi Ready) PSU
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

3. Core2Duo CPU
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Get the Gcard first.. play with it.. probably your psu will want to explode.. save some cash.. upgrade to top quality sli ready PSU.. save some more cash.. buy a Core2Duo CPU overclock her (pop 2gb ram in) and alakazam! you have one sweeeet gaming system. Basically your motherboard is good but you aint taking full advantage of it. This way you will.

ps. The 8800GT eats at leeeast 10 7300GT cards for breakfast.



theres also a number 4. lol

4. 2x1gb Crucial Ballistix RAM
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
