what do you expect for $50-$60.0 at least its dx 10 its a value card until he upgrades the pc nexted year
personaly i would get a 8800gtx then put it in the new pc after.
i mean why spend money on a sub card to buy another one in a few months
""""so i may wait for a price drop!#""""
the money you spend now on a good card will make up for it later even with a price drop when the 9800's come out
