Default Video Cards

Can someone give me a link to some inexpensive, yet good quality video cards?

Get a 6600GT. Its the best bang for your buck right now, and can max out every current game.

Get an X800 XL, it is the very best bang for your buck. Three hundred bucks, and leaves all competition in the dust.

I think you should tell them just how inexpensive. When I think inexpensive, I don't think 250-300 dollar cards.

How about either a FX 5700 or a FX 5900 then. Check out newegg.com

Don't even think about a GeForce FX series. If you want to go that cheap, get an ATI Radeon 9600XT or something.

I read your other post. I, myself, play World of Warcraft also. Believe me that game is quite graphic intensive. I wouldn't suggest you getting the 5XXX series, because they are bad for directX9 games. If you really can't dish out for $200-230, then go for it. Peronsally, i'll take the 6600GT or the ATI 9800.
