Dec 31, 2009, 8:01 PM
Buying my system today. I need a card to hold me over until nvidia gets out the door, may still go with ati.
Was just going to get a $30 card to hold me over but decided to get something to hold me over for a bit.

I would just go with the 4850. No need to spend the extra dollars for the ATI5750 when you plan to upgrade in March (or whenever Nvidia releases it... I'm waiting for it too!!
Also, you can look at a
EVGA 01G-P3-N964-LR GeForce 9600 GSO 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail
, which is enough to get you by with as well.
