    For under $100? Better hope the graphics card fairy comes tonight and
    leaves a 6800 Ultra under your pillow 'cause that's the only way a 2400
    has a chance to run med quality @ 1024x768.

    If you shop around, you might find a used 9700pro for close to $100 but
    you need to upgrade your CPU if you want to play @ higher rez.

    I guess you'r best option would be R9800PRO(256MB) but then your CPU
    would be a bottleneck.Try with the R9600XT(256MB).
