Are they $100 or $120? At $120, buy an HD4870. At $100, buy an HD4850.

Take the GTS250. It's a die shrink'd (smaller) 9800GTX.

Yeah, GTS 250 is essentially a 9800gtx+ that uses less power/heat. As shadow said though, look out for good prices on 4870/50 cards as that is where I would think the best 'bang for yer buck' is going to be.

ATI software has vastly improved; you will not be disappointed. Older cards like the 9600/9800 don't have very good drivers, and most likely never will.

BS the 9800 doesn't have good drivers.. The 8800 and the 9800 have great drivers and work flawlessly.

The HD4890 gives a 15-25% improvement over the 4870.

Get a 4870 or 4850 as those cards are at the same or near the price range and perform much better.
