    Hey all,

    This Christmas I will be looking for a new video card in my 2nd rig (Please see sig.)
    I pretty much just stuck an X800 in there since I got it for $50 and needed something to hold me over for a little while.
    I will be getting another 20.1" monitor (1st one is used in my first rig) so I need some power in my new GPU.
    This GPU will also be powering a 17" LCD monitor as well.
    I am a hardcore gamer and that is pretty much all this system will be used for.
    I am looking to keep it below $200. So wondering on what to look out for so it could be ordered in Nov.

    AGP or PCI express? Bum shaka laka DX10 non enthusiast cards will be released in early Q1, the X1950pro is a killer buy(around 199-250), which can be found tomorrow. The X1650pro with DDR3 is a good buy for around 120 or so. In the Nvida section the GS is what to look for.

    i'm liking my 7900gt a ton, and theres several models out there now that aren't too spendy, but maybe a tad over your budget.
    evga has the 7900gto for $250 on newegg, basically a 7900gtx thats been rebranded. pretty good deal. you can find 7900gt's for $220-250 also.
