Default Re: help me decide on a graphics card...

Those are both gonna be pretty lacking in the future. I would suggest saving up a little and looking at something like a 6600gt or a 9800pro. I have a 9800 pro and it works all on med and a couple on high for bf2 and it looks pretty good. Ebay is your best bet for a vid card. Just make sure u buy from someone with good reputation.

I have a 9800PRO, and it is a good card, but I really wouldn't advise it for todays games, as its starting to show its age rather alot. I am still able to play most games in high settings though; for instance FEAR, though the new Half Life 2: Lost Coast, brings it down to a very low fps rate, even though the original Half Life 2 could run all at high settings.

Its all because of the shader model 3 it doesn't support, which the Nvidia card would, so thats probably your best bet.
