Hey all,

I was going to order an x850xt for $167 from newegg.
I was waiting for Cebit to hit to see how low the ATI 1xxx cards would go and the new Nvidia cards.
So my question to you guys are what would be the best bang for the buck for any card up to $200.
I would love to spend around $100, but I would go higher.
Thanks guys

I'm confused your system specs show a 7800gt? or is this for a secondary comp or somehting for someone else?
anyways, you might just wait for the 7900 release to sink in and wait for the 7800's to drop. the x1800gto is 12 pipes and doesn't seem to keep up that well. lol

Well, just wait a week or so and get the 7600 GT, about 199 maybe less at newegg. pretty decent and 50 less than the X1800GTO. But personally, i would choose X1800 GTO, just thought that you wouldn't pay 250.

Man I wished I could go there to see the X1800GTO, but I caught yesterday that damn fever-viruses.
