Hello there!
I hope this is the right forum to post this in. I am to buy a new computer and lately i've not been following the market as much as i would've liked to. Now i wonder what card would be worth the money. I play lots of games, and i plan to play WoW, so i'm after a upper end GFX, but i'm not interested in one of those "This card is very new so it costs 3 times the decent price". So i'm asking what card would you suggest for someone who wants decent power and dont want to pay over say 340 or so $.

Thankfull for any replies :)

Best bang for the buck, by far, is the 9800 PRO right now.

~$160 american, and it'll compete well with the X700s and 6600's if you overclock it a bit.

That's exactly what i'm looking for, but here in sweden where i live, there's so many different brands and they vary so much in price i find it hard to know which one to take.

MSI Radeon RX9800Pro 128Mb DDR TV-out DVI RETAIL AGP
Connect3D All In Wonder Radeon 9800SE 128Mb DDR TV-out DVI VIVO bulk AGP
GeCube Radeon 9800Pro 128Mb DDR TV-out DVI RETAIL AGP

RX? SE? I know i sounds really new at this but i'm trying to get back in the saddle once again :)

SE-crap. 128-bit memory bus, like a Radeon 9500 (instead of the 256-bit memory bus of the real 9700 PROs).

Gecube=crap. Poor quality

MSI is your best bet, it's probably a full-fledged 256-bit memory bus card, but I'd look into it just to be sure.
