Uh, just looked up on newegg, this x850xt is only 140 after rebate, and he said his budget is about 175 so I think it makes the cut.

Problem with the X850XT is that it doesn't support Shader Model 3, like the 6600GT.

I'm going to make a completely new computer. My old one is going to go to my brother. I'm going to go with the 6600gt, because I want to stick with nVidia. Are 7300gs cards any good?

I just went to Fry's and they have a $250 PNY 7600 GT with a $50 rebate, making it $200. I think I might get that. I could probably scrape up about $25.

The 6600gt card has better benchmarks than the 7300gs. If you had to pick between the two, choose the 6600gt over the 7300gs.

Edit>>> But I would still recommend the nVidia GeForce 7600. Check out the later posts.

if you live in the US. the 7600gt is around 150 dollars on newegg. so if you have your mind set on that card, i would recommend getting it from there.
