If you want to save more then you can go for nVIDIA Geforce 9600GT 512MB (OCed)GDDR3 as it is also a solid performer in 1280X1024 resolution. coozie7 a c 159 U Graphics card April 30, 2009 8:21:48 PM 4770, they are already offering rebates on the Egg that bring the price to just under $100. madeux April 30, 2009 8:26:36 PM bustapr said:So my old Geforce7200 is fried.

Its basically SLI in a box.
