Need a new video card Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Graphics Product Last response: June 27, 2009 11:00 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Beitzel15 June 27, 2009 8:19:26 PM Hey guys.. I want to get a new video card for my brothers computer. I am a big fan of Nvidia but will go ATI if there's a better card for the money. Thing is, I have $130 MAX to spend on it and I need the BEST card possible for this amount. It has to play modern games very well... So far, Im looking at a 8800 GTS, 9800 GTX+ & the 4850 (all are 512) Is one the the 3 I picked the best for the money or is there something else? THANKS!!
