this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102854
seems to be best bang for buck,
this one is a little faster
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187091
but it does cost more
if the 20 bucks is no big deal go with the 9800

that card will play MW2 on max settings for sure.

and its slim design.


and also, just because a card has DDR5 dosnt mean its fast.
the more important spec is the Core clocks and number of shaders/processing units.

Everyone is right. DDR5 on a 128bit bus is like hooking a garden hose to a firetruck. If you will notice, the 9800GT is DDR3 memory on a 256bit bus. Which basically means that you get a higher bandwidth. Think of it as a highway, a 256bit memory bus is like an eight lane highway, whereas a 128bit bus is like a four lane highway. It doesn't do much good to have really fast memory if you don't have the bandwidth to let it scream.

4890 for sure
its a good card that will last you a long time from now even if it dosent support D11 which is something they forgot to tell you

You;ll want a newa game and find out it wont work on D11 just D 10
but most my games are D9 and even 7 so I dont mind having a 4890
