My old video card (nVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX) just gave out on me and now I need to buy a comparable video card. The computer is a basic 2007 Dell XPS 720, so I need something compatible with it and I don't want to spend too much.

Ok well that doesn't tell us much unfortunately.
Can you tell me your PSU wattage??
Do you have a preference to NVidia or ATI?
How much are you willing to spend?

Power Supply: 1KW (Red system) or 750W (Black system) - SLI, ATX2.0, EPS12V, SSI industry compatibility

I have no preference to one or the other
I'm hoping to spend not much more that $80-90...I can stretch up a little.

It's a cool looking system and it has a pretty decent PSU on it. Would you be willing to buy a used card? Best deal on a non used card that I could find in that price range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For a little bit more there is this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want to buy used then there's a GTX 470 on ebay for $125 http://www.ebay.com/itm/PNY-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-470-VCGG...

The GTX 470 blows those other cards out of the water and does so by a wide margin.

But then if you don't mind sticking with directx 10 and buying used then there's a GTX 295 for around $130. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Evga-GTX-295-Co-op-Dual-GPU-/27...

The GTX 295 is a bit better than the GTX 470.

Just a few of the good deals I could find on ebay.
