I have a pretty low budget, about $100. Only play WoW, SC2, and maybe D3 when it comes out.
Intel Core2 Duo3.00
4g ddr2 400mhz
antec 750watt
MSI MS-7380 motherboard

Found this i like the price, any thoughts http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-121-...

Your link is to a GT240 and that is a slower card than the 8800GT thus a downgrade.

The only new card that would be slightly better than an 8800GT in the Nvidia line up is a GTS450.

I was an nvidia fan too, till they totally re badged the 9 series and called it a new generation, and than rebadged the 8800GTX into 200 series...

^ well... I'm AMD/ATI fan but I will admit, nvidia was not all bad. The 460 was a really good make, I mean if the 6850 didn't come out that'd probably be the downfall of AMD in the mid-ranged department. So... the 460 is the great part of nvidia. So was the GTX 260, still today the 260 is playable on most games.
