Ya the link doenst work.

If its just a normal PCI graphics card that uses a PCI slot not a PCI-E slot then none of them wont be able to play doom 3 and far cry at the highest settings at all.

If ts a PCI-E card then get a 6600GT which will play any game with it set on high settings.

No way, that card doesn't even hold up against a GeForce 6600 non-Gt. Get yourself an eVGA GeForce 6600GT with 128 or 256 mb ramdac your choice.

The 6600GT is way better than the X700PRO.

Ok here is a very good 6600GT

I couldnt find a 256mb version of the 6600GT but there isnt much diferrence between the two.
Although its a 128mb its still great and its a good brand also.
