Default Need Video Card

I need a video card that supports Open GL and works with directx 9. My limit is somewhere around $50.00. I'm going to use this to play games such as doom 3, f.e.a.r, stalker (when it comes out), bloodrayne, and some of the better games. If I can't find a good one on here, I'll just go to ebay.

Sure, I will buy it. Does it support what I mentioned above? Also, does it work? (yes I must add that). Does it come with the drivers? Is it AGP 8x or below?

That's a good deal. Can you please tell me when you put the item up for auction, so I can be sure to grab it before anyone beats me to it?

For that price, I'm not sure you could get a card that would run games at decent settings/resoloutions at all,
but you could certainly find maybe in the 5000 Nvidia range, like the 5800 above, a good gaming soloution if you don't want to run at high resoloutions or settings.

Though, even then, especially with a new game like F.E.A.R or Stalker when that arrives, the GPU takes a dramatic hit.

You'll find with the 5000 range, even though they are built to run Direct X 9 games, they can't run in that setting very well, and so some games like Half Life 2, force Direct X 8 on the card which then speeds it up.

If your lucky, you might get a card (not really for that price range though) that will last you a year or so.
I'd advise to save up though for a Mid Range card like the 6600GT on AGP.
