Building a new PC (actually, a friend is doing it for me :ange:  ) and I've been out of the hardware loop for a while. Currently have a 6+ year old ATI Radeon w/ 128MB of RAM, a dinosaur in today's terms. :D 

What are decent cards in the $75-$100 range or so? I would like to be able to play some games, but don't need the over the top super expensive cards. The Machine will be either a Pentium Dual Core or Core 2 Duo.

Advice appreciated, thanks!

That GTS250 is actually quite a great deal. Looks like etailors are trying to get rid of nVidia.

Put it in cart to check and looks like all of it is mail in rebate.

$80 rebate? That's totall bullsh*t...

When the rebate is more than the actual cost after rebate, that smells fishy...

$150 before rebate is overpriced, and the rebate is too huge of a risk to take. Galaxy GTS250s cost $99 without rebate at my local Microcenter.

Get yourself a 4850 instead - performs the same as a GTS250 and costs around $100 without rebate.
