If u got the money then go with 7800GT. The price is $400-$600. It's the best card on the market atm.

ohh give it up ati man R520 might be good, but it ain't in the shops yet, and I don't think that it will be a lot more better than the 7800GT. So nVidia is pwning at the moment.

Well, the R520 boasts 32 pipelines... so it'll pwn nvidia. true, it's not out. There are delays in the production... but it WILL pwn.

I'm sorry that ati has been bad to you. I'm exactly the opposite. Nvidia gave me crap and ati has performed so nicely for me...

Hmmm does the 8X represent 8-bit, under chipset bus properties/ bus width?

Your motherboard is 8x compatible.

I would go with the radeon x800 series, it should be in your price range and it's one of the best cards out there for the price.

If you want a little cheaper then look for geforce 6800 series, they are also good.
