Ok, I now have a final budget...$410....
I want a GeForce 8800GT 512MB NOT 256MB. I would also like a new power supply (preferably modular) with a 6-pin pci-e connection. The power supply I have is 500W but is a piece of junk...I got it for $20 because it was an emergency (so obviously its crap). On the higher end 8800GT's there are reports of the card running hot so I am thinking about getting a VGA cooler:
and some arctic silver 5 thermal compound...
what is the best combination for my budget? the vga cooler isnt manditory but it would be nice (if i really need it...please let me know if i do...i do NOT plan on overclocking)
for the card....i would like it to be at least 650mhz if that doesn't fit my budget then i will settle for less
