Mine is the BFG Tech nVIDIA GeForce 6800 OC (NU)



I got it at Best Buy for $300. You can get it at newegg.com for $279.50

Your system RAM won't really effect your video card, it should work fine.

yes i have a 5200 and i havnt had 1 problem due to the card but the thing is i can run H-L2 on high nicely (it might be because its a demo) and i only have (i say only cause im upgrading) 512 Ram

But yes the card does suck anywayz im upgrading to a 6600GT YAY

yeah, the 6600gt is pretty nice. but why not just save up a litle more and get the 6800? its a better card and will out perform almost any card. the 6800 or the x850 are my choices for the high end cards. but until i have the moeny to get the x850, ill stick with my x300. yeha!
