Yeah I would say +1 for the 250... I was gonna link this card....

But then realized I have BFG 9800GTX + OC versions which is basically a 250... The one above is a lesser card then what I have....

spend the 10 bucks and get a better card... for 50 more you could be in a much better boat though :hello:

Try this one. It is about = to the HD4850 in performance.

It is 'recertified' but I have had excellent luck with newegg recertified products. The price/performance value is unbeatable unless you want to take a chance with an ebay purchase.

here is an HD4850 review that includes a comparison to the 9800 gtx+. The card meets or exceeds the hD4850 in almost every game and all the synthetic benchmarks. On top that, it will crank out 6000+ points per day from folding@home.

here is a comment from one of the buyers. The driver disk is useless anyways and the manual/utilities can be downloaded from the web site so just make sure you have the correct power requirements. ie: 2 x pcie cables from your psu. If not then just get an adapter.


*Referbished* box came with no PCIe power adapter, no drivers, no manual, nothing but the card. Card requires TWO PCIe power connections for full performance.

p.s. the 'recertified' products usually go pretty fast so you might want to make a decision within the next day or two.

i you REALLY cant spend more than $100-120, then i guess you would have to get this one...

I wouldn't touch that card honestly, Beg, steal or borrow the extra 9.95 lol and get a card that is

1. Lifetime warranty
2. Has positive reviews from people that know what they are doing with computers, not most of the idiots that Neg feedback on new egg.
3. Is going to serve you in the future
4. Gonna run every game that is currently out at decent settings.


That 9600gt that you linked to IMHO you are not gonna be happy with in the long run.


edit: sorry lasoski311 I thought by the way you worded that your were the original poster..... my bad :ouch:

I would recommend the HD 4850 as the best Nvidia card for around $120.
