Hey, I am looking to get a new video card to replace my 9800 GT. I want one that runs fairly cool or won't have the fan blaring.

I am looking to spend $200 at the most.

I am looking at the:

Anyone think its a good choice? It is $195 after rebate.

its a good choice but its $257 out the door and $200 6-8 weeks later once you get the rebate

the GTX 460 1GB for 1900x1080 and GTX 460 768mb for 1680x1050 are both very good choices at under $200. I have the MSI cyclone and it runs cool and silent.

the new ATI 6850 is another card to look into.

I was going to suggest the 6850 but the 5850 is 250. If he can afford 250 now might as well get the 6870.

I am just looking for a card that will run almost anything on High with no loud fans. I got an Antec 900 and the air flow is pretty good, going to add an extra fan once I get the new card.

I can afford $300, but I rather only spend $200 or less. Would it be better to wait for deals on November?

up to $200

$125 for HD 5770, GTS 450
$150 for GTX 460 768Mb
$180 for GTX 460 1G, HD 6850

Other than 450, you can pick any of those.
