Best Graphics card around $100

I'm a first time computer builder thinking of making a rig, and am uncertain of what GPU I should choose. I've reviewed the Best Graphics Cards For The Money: September 2011 on tomshardware,3018.html

but am still unsure.

I am planning on doing some gaming, though I'm happy playing on low specs.

The card that I'm looking at very seriously is Galaxy 60XMH6HS3HMW GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) GC 768MB

After the rebate it's $100 + $8 shipping.

Is there anything better than this for a similar price?

I probably won't SLI or Crossfire.

Not sure if I'll Overclock

My monitor is a pretty standard 19".

The computer that I'm proposing to build has

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz $105

ASRock 880GMH/U3S3 AM3+/AM3 AMD 880G $84.50

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) $52

hec Zephyr MX 750 750W $65

HEC Blitz Black Steel Edition ATX Mid Tower Computer $42

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB $55

Thanks a lot guys

P.S. If you have any thoughts about the rest of the rig, I'm happy to have any suggestions.

  1. If you manage to get a GTX 460 for around 100$, your getting GREAT deal.
    Also, if your able to save up a few more bucks, I'd go for this motherboard:
  2. I have a PNY GTX 460 that I will sell to you, Only if you would trust me. Its in perfect condition.

    its the 1024Mb version
  3. Thanks for the offer Hezx, but I think I'm gonna buy everything new, just to make it easy on myself.

    I might be wrong about this Ringelos, but I think that the mobo you suggested only supports AM3+ CPU socket, and my CPU is only an AM3, which may cause some problems.
  4. i think around that you can get hd 5770 or (6770) for around 80 after rebate
  5. Aww... really was trying to get rid of it =(.

    Also the mobo he sugested is a AM3+ mobo but it supports
    FX / Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
  6. Also your case is fine. But I would also recommend

    I used to have this one before I got the Antec Nine-Hundred two V3.

    And it worked perfectly and is very appealing to me
