Default GFX card help....

Ok, my B-day is in June, and Im starting to shop around for video cards. Only thing is, I dont know which one to get. My parents are putting in $250 and then I have to pay the rest. $450 is about as high as I can go, however, if I spend this much, I wont be able to get a new PSU for the card, becuase some of the cards I was looking at require a 480W+ PSU. I dont want an ATI and it needs to be AGP. Thanks guys.

Ive got a chaintech geforce 6800, I think it cost me about 350 dollars and it really screams, well atleast i think so. For mine you need a 300W power supply so you might not even need to buy a new one. Ive heard that the Radeon's are good too so check them out, and for 450 dollars to spend i think you can get a geforce 6800 ultra or a radeon X800 not too sure about their price or what kind of psu you need though.

Eh. It's still pretty good if you're not going to OC. But their Lifetime Warranty is the real eye-catcher.
