Default Re: new computer...need input.

6600GT? not even. 6600 is more like it. However, the 6600GT is only about $135... so it's not much more. I was gonna get that card.. but I decided i'd be patient and go for a 7600GT instead.. much better card.

No kidding. My dad's computer is only 3 years old and it is starting to show it's age in newer games.

For $120 you can get a variety of things...

GeForce 7300GS
GeForce 7300LE
GeForce 6600GT
GeForce 6600LE
GeForce 6600
GeForce 7600GS

Radeon X700
Radeon 9800 Pro
Radeon X300
Radeon X550
Radeon X1300 Pro
Radeon X1600 Pro (I believe)

You can get many cards for $120. You don't need a $300 card to play games on high settings, you do however, need a $300 video card if you want to play at high settings at higher resolutions such as 1600x1200.
