what do u guys think about this
Don't rely on newegg's details too much - sometimes they can be a bit off (for example, I purchased a GF4 Ti 4200 card a while back, in the specs, it was stated that the core and memory were 225 and 500 MHz, respectively, when in reality, when I got the card, it was actually 250/513).

The chip itself is 256-bits (as well as the memory bus width), however, the only thing about 128-bit is the memory bus on the R9500/9600 series (which doesn't apply here).

Yes, I agree. They are expensive, because you stated that you wanted a card with 256MB. (The 128MB will do just fine btw)

Ah, I misread you post.

The last link you provided will be more than enough to play those games you requested, so I would go with that.

Another card that offers excellent performance is the RADEON 9700 PRO (whenever getting a Radeon, make sure it's the PRO series) and it's under $300
