The 6600GT is a card that will not dissapoint you. I strongly reccomend it.

the 6600 GT isnt a top of the line card. it is almost as good though, and its only price for around $170. Top of the line cards cost $300 - up

Ok by top of the line I mean over 100 dollars. The majority of people who play games are usually casual gamers, who play on their dell computers. They don't want to lose those costumers, so most game companies will usually have alot of leeway in terms of specs. The 9600xt should be sufficient for most current games on non crazy settings and would probably last you a good year or two. Then you can buy a new computer, because yours is aging.

It's pretty sad that whenever someone wants a suggestion for a video card and is on a tight budget, people rush in and suggest a card that is way over the budget, not affordable sollutions.

Nah, 350 is enough for your computer.
