I recently put together my new pc and i have all the components except a video card(right now its running the built in). Really i am looking for a setup that would give me the best bang for my buck(Whether it is a monster single card or dual crossfire setup).

Here's my rig

AMD Phenom X6 1050t
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO (Its a CrossFire Board)
4gb(2gbx2) DDR3 1600 G-Skill Ram
620w Antec Neo Eco 620C
Rosewill Challenger Case(Front,Top,Back Fans)

Looking to purchase soon(This week or next week)

Price desired - Around $200

What i want to do with it
-Play games(Crysis at Very High)
-I use ubuntu linux so it must be compatible with linux

I use newegg most of the time for my purchases(I live in the US)

Ive been looking really closely at the Nvidia GTX 460's and i like the performance they seem to show in most benchmarks

I think i got everything on here just let me know if you need more info

Yeah, the GTX460s is probably your best choice. No SLI without a hack however, so you lose one of the GTX460s strongest assets.

You can actually consider a HD5830.

The GTX 460 is indeed what you want for $200, especially if linux compatibility is important.
