Best Used Graphics card for ~$100 ?

I'm upgrading my PC with probably a Phenom Quad + MB. I'll buy these new as I want no problems with the MB especially. However, I've no issue with buying GPU's on the used market as I've purchased almost 1/2 dozen to date without a hitch.

Bottom line, what's the best used card out there right now for around a hundred bucks? I'm not looking for anything much higher than 19x12 and probably will settle in lower than that.

    ?? These things are new @ only $130. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=10010069&prodlist=froogle

    I can get a EVGA Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB PCI-E Card for $100. Any good?
  3. No because you can buy a new GTS250 for 109
  4. Recent cards are to expensive on the used market. They don't come with warranty and I have seen them go over retail value on ebay. If you know what you want you will eventually get it but 90% of the cards on ebay go for a to high a price.

    I guess GTS250 is a repackaged 8800?
  6. GTS250 is a repacked 9800GTX+ both of them have slightly better performance than the 8800GTX. They are a further development of the same technology and much more power efficient.
