well i'm pretty budget right now but it's a definate upgrade from my ati 9600 pro. I seen on one of my local buy and sell websites that some one was selling this with cod2 and serious sam for 90 dollars.

i was going to buy an 3850 for 189.99 at ncix but this caught my eye. I heard these things can oc like mad.

How long till this card goes obsolete and if i can run COD4 well. I'm running XP.

I had a post like this, but it was a Geforce 7950 GX2 for $120. Everyone said dont get it.

I bought it any way.

buy it, don't listen to others, just do what your hard sais.

you want to know why? because i think that your system is pretty old like mine. and i wanted to buy it too, but i bought a 8600GT (never buy that one). you have to see if your system can handle it, i think it can, but beware if that 90$ card is an agp or pci-express. because the ati9200 was an agp card, is yours too? or are you talking about the PCI version?

pci i play on a pentium 4 630 3 ghz processor and 3 gigs of ram, and a 8600 gt, you can easily run cod4!

what is your cpu and ram?

$90 for an AGP 7900GS is a pretty good deal. Seeing how you have a 9600 pro, I take it you are looking at AGP.

$90 for a used PCI-e 7900GS is a lousy deal IMO seeing how a brand new HD2600XT has been as low as $60 AR at newegg and will very often easily outperform the 7900GS in newer games.

For an AGP card that is a seriously good deal. Will be a massive improvement over your 9600Pro

Yeah definitely go for it. 7900GS AGP are hard to come by and they are one of the best AGP cards you can get. For $90 dollars, it will breath new life into your system.

Now if you're talking about how long it until that card becomes obsolete...well, let's just say AGP is already obsolete :D 

You should be able to play current games on medium settings. If it comes with some games, that card is a pretty good buy.
