Also if you have any other NVIDIA card recommendations that are around $150-$175, lemme know. Thanks!
right now Nvidia cards are all overpriced with new cards coming in at the end of the month for them.
So I would say wait till next April-May before you start looking for a new Nvidia cards.
If you want to go for an ATI card, the 5770 would be in your price range and it is a very good gaming card.
