9200SE works good if your only playing lower level games, like halo on low settings, or warcraft 3 ROC on the highest settings....

Okay, what card would you reccomend then if Saphire isn't a good choice? I am broke so i could probably spend about 60 bucks tops .
I'm not going to be playing too many games, about the only one I could think of is maybe Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory, and that works on my brothers older saphire card...
And by the way, Cappy, this is for a new computer. Like I said, I have no money, so I need cheap video card to at least get my computer running until I get enough money to upgrade.
