this is odd, no post i see
maybe a glitch
I've gotten the green light to get a new vcard (thank heavens) & I'm wanting to know what cards are the good ones now? I've had a ati 3850 pci-e 512mb & so want to go back to nvidia..what would you say?
PC froze during post..it was odd.
Hmm, first time I've seen an OP as the second post. LOL. Not sure I can do anything about that.
Best cards in that range for nvidia would be a 9800gt. At that particular price range, I believe the ATI 4850 is a better card. That's coming from a person who usually prefers nvidia.
a Hd4850 or a 9800GTX
I beat him to his own post, lmao
i have never seen this happen before
I think you are getting excessive with your quickness to respond.
A 9800gtx is not really around $150, unless you mean after rebates.
yea, newegg has this one for 170 but its 150 after rebate
and a recertifed one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130403 for 130
Quick search on Newegg:
Cheapest 9800 GTX that appeared: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143137
Cheapest HD4850 that appeared without rebates: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143137
There are some HD4850 cards with $20 and $30 rebates that go for $140, but no free shipping.
Yeah next cheaper 9800GTX's are a little bit more expensive, but I just had to make that little stupid claim that you can have a 9800GTX for $150 AND cheaper than HD4850.
You beat me. See how you are too fast? j/k it's what happens when you are doingother things and don't ht F5.
It's NOT MIR thought.
Heres a good card for $150 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143137
Wow that is a nice card
It's the same KainX and I posted.
I was busy and didn't refresh the page before sending my post. What's your excuse?
Alright..whats a good card in the 100$ range?
I know you said Nvidia, but have you seen what the 4830 can do, especially overclocked and in crossfire? I have to wonder how low this card will go, with rebates, with the economy the way it is.
Probably a 4830, though you can find 9800gt's in the $120 range.
Nvidia all the way
Get a 9600GSO.
Is this a monster card? I'm trying to get the best I can afford from 100 to 150 that would blow my 3850 out of the water
You'll have to play the rebate waiting game there for something decent and Nvidia:
It will blow the 3850 out of the water and it's cheaper than $100 bucks. I could play GRID on a 22" monitor, high settings no problems. Not so with my old 3850. Recertified for $60 bucks. Good deal! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130423 You really aren't going to get a "monster" card for $150. Perhaps try finding a 9800GTX for around that price, but I'll doubt you'll need that kind of power with a 19" monitor.
I had a HD3850(RIP) and what erocker says is true
Well if you want a Nvidia right now *waste of money in that price range* 9800GT, otherwise HD4830/4850 both beat a 9800GT.
I had palit sonic version of 9600GSO 768 it overclocked much better than current Galaxy 9800GT and the fact that i use 19" (not for long I hope ) I could not see the difference (3dmark not included). So for the money it is good card. But I would wait little longer. 3850 to 9600gso don`t look to me like big upgrade.
you could just get a recertified 9800GTX for 130
I"ve decided on this
A 9800GT with COD for 120 - not too shabby
