Im looking at spending $100 to $200 for a new video card. It will be in a pc with an AMD Barton 2600 and 1 GB PC2700. Right now I'm running a ATI Radeon 9600 Pro. But I need a new video card and decided that I might want to pass down my 9600 to the needy pc. Im leaning towards 6600 GT or something like that but, I haven't closely followed the newest round of video cards. Thanks for the help.

I just finished building a new system and, not being a gamer, didn't want to sink 500 bucks into a video card. I installed a Chaintech Nevada GeForce 6600GT. So far so good and it is PCI-Express (x-16) capable and if you have a LCD display this card is also DVI capable so you can receive a digital image which is awesome.

the 6600GT is a good buy for your budget. check out www.newegg.com for the good deals.

Yep yep. 6600GT for sure.

MSI and Gigabyte make some good ones.

yup i vote for the MSI one because of the package, the performance difference's between two brands version of the same vid card is tiny a powercolor one will only get about 1%-3% less FPS than a Leadtek or ASUS one
