    I got a nvidia 6800gt. Best card for the money by far. Easily overclockable and plays half life 2 perfect :P. Should last you a few years with no problems. Shouldn't be too bad on the price now. I payed $400 for it like a year ago. Says $270 on pricewatch.com now. I'm not sure what your budget is, but you can't go wrong with that card.

    get a x800 gto , but if u want one that will last u a while and let u play games with awesome detail get the x800 gto2 , which unlocks to a full x850 xt pe , so when u find games that lagg on the x800 gto2 speeds just unlock the damn thign and blow stuff up after that ................ a good investment definately , ati is a lot better than nvidia when it comes to quality ! just an opinion

    here is a link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102634

    u cna browse other cards here aswell a lot better prices than pricewatch and better warranty !

    If you have a NVIDIA Geforce 2 MX 100/200 your computer probably sucks. In fact, it probably sucks a lot.

    Don't get a video card over $100 USD. You can get something like a 6600 LE for about that price and it will run a lot faster than your Geforce 2. If you blow $300+ on a video card you won't see the performance you are expecting because your computer sucks so hard.
