If you have 500 dollars, get a GeForce 5950. The ATI Radeon 9800XT is as good as the GeForce 5900, therefore the GeForce 5950 is better than both cards! Or, you can get the GeForce 5700 Ultra 128MB Graphics Card. I don't recommend you get a Radeon Card. Their not good for CoD, its engine, graphic/game-wise, crappy support, crappy drivers, and crappy support/problems again! I don't even know if CoD supports it?

I have a radeon 9600 PRO 128MB video card and its a really really good mid priced card. I was just playing COD with the frame counter on in the top corner and my aaverage FPS at 1280 X 1024 x32 was about 120 to 140 frames per second that is with 4X antialasing 16x trilinear ANIOSOPIC FILTERING and ALL 'bells and whistles' that can be activatd in the game menu. If I use a lower resolution, my frames are even high. Buying a RADEON 9800XT 256 MB agp8x or a GFX-5950 ultra with 256 MD of video is a really stuiped thing to do. Why you my ask? Because, just like every peripherial in any computer The very very top preforming items ( radeon 9800XT or GFX 5959 ) can be almost double the price and then in 1 or 2 years time when they have something new and wicked out, you will still be paying for your 'TOP OF THE LINE CARD' that isnt top of the line any more and couldn't sell it either. A mid ranged card ( RADEON 9600 series or a GFX 5700/5800 ) will make you happy. This is especially true if you are upgrading from a older card ( eg. GF4 440MX to a RAdeon 9600 ) How ever you wont notice that big of a performance gain if you are going to a RADEON 9600 to RADEON 9600XT. Do you get me? For the little 'noticable' differency in performance buying a top of the line card doesnt give you much 'bang for your buck'. You cannot tell the difference say 120FPS and 150FPS. I like both of the leading video card manufactures. Have owned and done private testing on a huge range of cards - GF2 ( all of them ), GF3 ti299 and ti 500 ( good cards but getting dated now ), gf 4 series ( 440 MX and 4200ti ) radeon 9200/9200SE. I was also fortunate to use a RADEON 9800 for a week too. Both ATI and NVIDIA ( geforce ) have SOLID products. For the guy earlier, it would be very stuiped if EA or Activision or whoever would make one of the two video card not work on thier game. Yes the radeon 9800XT256 MB or the GFX 5959 ultra are the best, hell they are awsome but, I have a mortgage and cant justify spending hundreds on a card that will half price 1 year later. Keep in mind, with TLC you can over clock your video for a little extra umphf ( usually 10% of original GPU speed can be safley adjusted on both types of cards. I have a 9600 PRO and I love it.

I also have the same card (256mb) and it is great. Check to see if it has a fan...or if your case has good air movement, because COD will make it overheat (see that other thread). Or get that Cyclone I mentioned. I love the card...and use Omega drivers with it....better drivers than ATI. And, yes, COD does support it.

My Nvidia Quadro 4 980XGL is superb for call of duty. The res is set at 1280 x 1024 with all graphics settings up full also with anisotropic filtering at 4x and antiallising at 4x running smoother that medal of honor allied assault. I'm sure it will be able to play doom 3with all the graphics up full too!
