Question I need a video card...

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should buy? The main video intensive game I play is Counter-Strike, and I want a card that wouldn't make my game skip when I walk through smoke. My budget is only around 100 dollars. Right now I got a GeForce MX 4000.

I've got recommendations on 9600XT from my friends, because they said the price will drop soon, and that it's a good card to play with. Anyone know if this is true?

I've heard that the 9600XT is really good. It also comes with a free half life 2!

If your looking for a budget vid card, a 9200 might work for you. I use a 9200 and I play games like BF1942 without any problems.

The 9600XT is out of your price range currently

I'd also look into Nvidia line of cards, as most of their non-ultra versions of high to meduim end cards are under a $100
