I'm looking to replace my current GPU with a newer card since the fan on mine is going out and I thought I might look here for some recommendations for a new GPU. First I want it to be PCI-E and I don't want it to be much more then $100.00 since I'm currently strapped for funds. I'm also looking to go back to Nvidia but I can be persuaded to stay with ATI as well. Just depends on what is found. I've already started looking and I'll post what I've found later but I'd like some additional feedback as well.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

This 8600GT XXX 256MB is retail at $127, but after a mail in rebate its under $100

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P2-N773-AR GeForce 8600GTS 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

This 8600GTS 512MB is $159, but comes it at $139 after rebate.

Just some suggestions for your price range

Cool, another question that you've reminded me of. Whats the difference between GS, GT, GTS??

I forgot to mention that I use dual displays if that matters as to the choice of video cards.

arcadeplayer987;4116422For 120$ this one is much better than 8600GT/GTS

I'm sure it is. But that's all you've said. ... :rolleyes:

I agree, if you don't need DX10, then a X1950XT would be much better bang for buck.

Those are still somewhat good video cards but they are starting to get dated.
