Default Helping with buying somthing.

Ok since i just built my new pc and stuff my brother is a gamer and iam kinda broke but i love my bro so i wanted him to get him a nice video card and mouse what should i get him. About 100 or 150 i would spend. Hes a gamer like me.

I beat his ass in css and almost every other game like godfather hawk we play online and says its because my pc is God like lol. He dosnt have a video card and has a mouse that turns off and on and lags like crazy lol.

Give us some more specifications about the computer. What is the interface for the video card? PCI-e x16? PCI-e x1? or AGP? If his computer is pre-built, just give us the name. If you don't know the information about the interface, give us the name of the motherboard.

ok, around that price range, i really like the nvidia 9800GTX+ : newegg has one for $100 after MIR:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133246
that should leave you $50 bucks for the mouse. cant help you there, i use a $15 dollar mouse i bought at some sale.

(although heh heh, i think that the 9800GTX+ is better than your card lol. maybe you should get it and give him yours )

EDIT: it's really nice of you to give him a gift and all. really warms my heart =)
EDIT: also sorry the reviews on the PNY card dont seem too nice. look for an eVGA maybe. i play favorites of course.....
