Default Graphic Cards around 80$

hey guys i was wondering whats the best pci express card that i can get, im working with about 80$. so far i have been thinking about either a HIS Radeon HD 4670 IceQ Turbo or a GeForce 9600GT, from what i have seen they are somewhat similar, so any advice? or if im going in the wrong direction with both cards?

Those are the best cards you can get for $80, if they're both the same price, go with the 9600GT, it's a bit faster.

if after rebates counts, one of these for around $80 is actually the best you can get for that price, they overclock like a champ from what I hear...

4830

For that cash i'd go grab a 9600GT if you can find one for 80 bucks. Great card

If you can, do what wolvarine suggested, otherwise go w/ the 9600GT.

I just ordered the MSI 4830 here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127394

Seems like a good card and pretty cheap too. Planning on OC'ing; it is supposed to be up to par with the 4850 when OC'd.

yea i just read some reviews of this msi being overclocked and running almost as good as the 4850, sounds like a good idea

I'm pretty sure the GSO's are slower than the GT's.
