I like whatever is better within the amount of money that I want to spend. People are recommending AMD/ATi cards because the 4850/70 are great performers for what they cost.

Thanks because i notice when you look any of them up, the radeons are always expensive. i dont know what to get either because i have had NVIDIA cards for a long time and they rule.
By the way, if you can look at my other thread whick is "a good gAming pc?" could i also get your opinion?

AMD doesnt make graphics cards, then formed with ATI which makes the Radeon series.

For me, i go with whatever gives me the best performance for my money. Why pay more if you can get one better for the same price?

I've alwys run Nvidia cards. Well, that's not exactly true. I used to run 3dfx cards until they went belly up. Nvidia cards have always served me well with stability and excellent performance.

if you really want to go with nVidia, then go for it, i would recommend the 4850 for about $30.
But since you are on a budget, i guess its good.

I prefer to custom build my own, i would know exactly what i have, what i wanted, and how i wanted it.
