:fou:  Well my 9800gtx just died RIP i am going to waite for the new video cards to come out but i need a temp card just so i can play left 4 dead 2

I picked up an used bfg 7900gs oc 256mb but can't run left 4dead 2 with out lag, this is the setting that i tried to play at 1280x960 and AA at 2X but the dam 7900 can't even play at those settings, i half to not use AA to get good fps but still laggy and looks like crap so i was thinking some of these cards because they are cheap let me know if any of these cards are faster then the 7900gs oc 256

Just go for a Radeon 4650 HD
for $50
Will play every game at that resolution
Games at maximum settings >>>>>> Games at minimum settings
at 1280x960

Yes,
Radeon 4650 is faster than those cards
I own one and I am pretty happy with its performance at 1280x1024
Plays all modern games maximized at 1280x1024
CRYSIS runs on medium with 2x AA
e.g.
In Modern Warefare 2,
I have all settings maximized with 4x AA.
Same goes for Batman: Arkham Asylum, Assassins Creed, Prototype, Left 4 Dead 2, AirBourne, FarCry, BioShock, Fallout 3......
(these are the only ones i can remember yet)

i lost the sales receipt so evga said no dice, also what settings do you half left 4 dead 2 at, and whats the diff from 64bit higher 4650 :o  i could buy one of those new ati cards but rather wait for the new geforce cards, i stay away from ati because when you install them :fou:  you end up looseing the onboard sound that happened with my friend he had an 4350.

4650 is better by some margin.
Why don't you get a Hd 4670?
