If you are looking to post to buy... you need to be in the B/S/T section.

If you are asking for advice on a card, then a little more info on the system and the use of the card may be of benefit.

And, any card has a decent price... in the price range of the card.

What is your price point?
What PSU is going to be feeding it.
You want AMD or NVidia?
