    Ok, looking really cheap here, but i need a pci-e gfx card for $70. Im in australia if that does anything to change things. Needs to be able to run bf2, gta sa, hl2, doom3 fairly well. At res of like 1024x768 and maybe even with some AA / AF enabled.

    Cheers Scott

    Hope your talkin $70 US and not Aus!! I think you aint gonna get close even on US dollars apart from maybe a very lucky deal on E Bay as mentioned TBH. Even at 1024 x 768 BF2 requires some revs and if you want to add 2 x AA well....that's money!

    OK, done some research for you, in the UK...."Overclockers UK" have a good name, I have bought lots from them and they will ship all over the world, you can get a brand new one of these within your budget if it's US dollars you are talking:

    I am not sure but this may well be un-lockable/flashed to 16 pipes, you will need to check.
