I want to get a new GFX card for Crysis. I dont play computer games but I want Crysis really bad. And I want to play it on high settings. Right now I have: ATi Radeon X850 (I can do med. with no lag) Pentium 4 2.4 GHz 250 GB HDD 1 GB RAM I am going to get a new motherbord for free with a Dual Core Processor and I just need the GFX card. I dont want to pay any more than $250 I was thinking about the HD2600 because its new and its a DX10 card What do you guys think is the 2600 worth it?
What is this place?

It looks quite nice but I prefer nVidia cards over ATi. But go with it, its a really nice card but make sure you have a PSU thats powerful enough to support all of the new hardware. I'd recommend a 400-500 watt PSU with multiple 12V rails.
For 250$ you can get 8800GT because with HD2600 you will never play crysis at high
1 more gig of RAM would do you nice, or 3 more if you plan on running Vista.

Exactly what he said. That 2600 Pro isnt even faster than the X850 you have now. Wait for the 8800GT, it will be coming out before Crysis and is supposed to be more powerful than a $280 8800GTS and will only cost around $250.
