Thumbs up Need Help finding a Graphics card

my last Radeon X-850XT crapped out on me recently(i only had the bugger just over a year and a half). Looking to get another radeon card(cause I'm more familiar with their software) and have a budget around $250-300. I was think of possible an X-1800 of some model. What do you guys think?

for that price range an ati card doesnt make any sense at all. you would not be able to get dx10 and why shell out that much money for something that is yesterdays technology.

what do you do with your computer if you game get this never mind if it is from nvidia

hhmmm that looks really good, but the core clock is slower than I'm looking for. Also, I doubt that I'm gonna even use a Direct X 10 for a good year or two. Hell, I'm still happy playing Dota on Warcraft 3. Still i'll keep that in mind.
