My 8600 gts graphics card is dead, and i am looking into a cheap decent under 75 dollar graphics card. I am NOT a hardcore gamer, and dont mind playing games on medium to high settings, i mostly play racing games like need for speed, dirt, grid and burnout. Is the gt 210 a good replacement card for me?

9600GT or 9800GT. There's also the GT 240 but it is overpriced in comparison.

You can get a 9800 GT for $79 after MIR on newegg. That is the best card you can get under a hundred dollars in either ATI or Nvidia.

The Nividia GT 240 is intended to replace the 9800 GT at the $90 mark--but is not as fast of a card and costs more.

(The best ATI card you could get would be the single 4830 thats still available on newegg for $94.

The 4670 is a good value card if you prefer the $55-65 price range, but will not perform as well as a 9800gt.

(unless there are some really awesome sales that I have missed)

-----------------------

All in all, i bought a HIS H467QS1GH Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card from newegg for 80 bucks with free shipping. That seemed to be best card that was in the middle of my budget and should fits my needs as a casual gamer and not a hardcore high quality gamer like most people
