Default Decent Video Card

In the next year, if i was planning on getting a new video card to replace my crappy FX5200, what would you guys suggest under $150. Preferably Nvidia. The ONLY games i play are ROME: Total war, and FIFA 2006 World cup, when it comes out,

yeah and its AGP 8x

thanks

ATI > Nvidia

Again, that's a personal opinion based on experience.

I bleive the vanilla 6600 is better than the 9600xt and the 5700U, but dont quote me on it. Spend the extra couple of bucks and go for the 6600GT, u wont regret it.

Well, when FIFA 06 comes out, get the 6800GT, it should be that low when it comes out. If you do not want to wait that long, get the x800 XL card when it comes out.
