Re: Video Card for a gamer on a budget
The 9600GT is the best performing card in your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814134040
Plus that card comes with the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 cooler which is a big improvement over the reference and can cool the 9600GT passively. You can also add two fans for even better cooling.
