Best Video Card for under $300?

I'm putting together a new computer and I'm looking for the best video card under $300.

At that price I figure it'll be really nice, but not the bleeding edge.

I'm thinking about the ATI RADEON X1950 PRO 256MB right now.

What do you think?

Thanks

  1. If you abselutly cant wait than gor for the x1950 pro or xt. If you can wait then wait for next gen mid-range cards. 8600Ultra with 64 unified shaders, 256bit 512mb ddr3. or get the r600 mid-range card which no-one has any idea about. It's all about the waiting game. your choice.
  2. Hmm, how long a wait are we talking here?
  3. Nobody really knows. My Guess is 2-3 months. Do it for crysis :wink:.
  4. 1950xt all the way, they run about $250. Although if your willing to wait for the midrange dx10 cards to come out something like a 1950pro would be a good place holder.
  5. I agree. Definitely the X1950XT.
  6. Wait, doesn't the X1950Xt run about $500?

    Not in the USA. That would be the X1950XTX that is near $400.

    If you are buying now, then the X1950XT definatelty gets my vote assuming $380ish for an 8800GTS is too high.

    The X1950XT's run anywhere from $220-250 after rebate. The HIS iceQ like I have is $250AR.

  8. Nope. You must be thinking of the 1950xtx, but those havent been even close to $500 for a couple months.
