which brings us to this 4550
for $53 (Canadian) shipped, which curb stomps his current card but may come up a bit short compared to his old 8600GT, but it's only $3 (Canadian) over his limit and he get's $5 USD back with the rebate...
I'm out, this thread is waaaaay too long for picking a $50 card (Canadian or US dollars)...
Actually, this card you mentioned looks to be the best choice so far.
And as far as the thread goes, picking out a higher end card should have LESS discussion, since there are no boundaries. With this, there is a lot of criteria to follow and therefore requires more discussion. The tighter the budget, the harder it is to pick out a card.
So now I just need to decide between this, another 8600gt, or wait and save up another $33 somehow and go with the XFX. It wouldn't be so bad if newegg.ca actually had an 8600gt, but only the .com has it. The .ca says it's unavailable, and tigerdirect is pricier. boo-urns.

This was a prebuilt dell pc, I didn't buy the card on its own.
