Intel does not make video cards unless their onboard(integrated)

However I would recommend the XFX GTX 260 core 216

What kind of Power supply, cpu, and motherboard do you have ?

Best performance for the cheap price (used to be like 250 last month) comes with farcry 2 and Call of duty world at war plus it looks sweet. Get it

2 games to test its performance lol

I guess you haven't heard I'm the one that recommends the Core 216 around these forums....

I'll let it slide this time.

I just Nvidia and Intel could make a combined P45 type chipset that could support SLI for the Core 216 video cards. That would be awesome. SLI'ed Core 216's with a Core 2 Duo E8500, 4 Gigs of DDR2 1066, and a velociraptor drive and you would have a monster of a PC.

Absolutely no way we can tell you what card is best for you with the info we have.
We need system specs, your monitor's resolution, do you overclock? What games do you play etc etc.
