    Question Which graphics card is cheaper?

    I might buy a new graphics card for my computer tomorrow, since I can not play CoD: MW2 due to an old 12/1/2004 graphics card!

    I am on Windows XP Media Center Edition 2008.

    So which is the cheapest, but will still let me play CoD: MW2?
    -ATI Radeon
    -NVidia
    -Intel

    NEVER INTEL FOR GAMES SUCH AS COD, store bought games. Intel is for like COmbat Arms with decent graphics. My gaming computer came with ATI cause its cheaper then NVidia but Nvidia is better than ATI but I like ATI! Hope this helps.

    Sigh, this is too general, you need to get specific models? ==" I highly recommended you don't get Intel GFX crap. ATI I reckon is better because they are cheaper than the same quality Nvidia. I recommend for you ATI Radion 3870 because it has been superseded by the 5870 and is now quit a bit cheaper. The 3870 can also run any other games on about medium-high levels.

    Okay, so ATI Radeon is cheaper, but NVidia is better? I'll probably get ATI Radeon then. I spoke with an agent about what to get it, and they are going to call me tomorrow about ordering the right one for my old computer, and also to discuss the pricing.

    As I said, its too general. Generally tho, they are about the same. ATI is just cheaper. My ati has been working perfectly for 4 years.

    I highly highly highly recommend 3870 OR 3850 because its now cheaper because of newer models as well as being a good performer

    People have been saying that NVIDIA performs better, so I looked at NVIDIA cards and this one is $90!

    ZOTAC ZT-98GES3G-FSL GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    Lifetime warranty with easy registration(limit 99 per customer)

    will that play CoD MW2/Combat Arms fast, medium, or slow? (ha! it cant be any slower than the CRAP i have right now) (I have Intel Graphics Miniport Driver and its 6 years old!)

    EDIT: i found a $65 one:
    MSI N220GT-MD512 GeForce GT220 Video Card - 512MB DDR2, PCI-Express 2.0, DVI, HDMI, VGA

    -im good at computers, but i have no clue what some of this stuff is and if it is good or not lol

    That's really old but i reckon that's on par probs better than the 3650. You can probs run at relatively high graphics. As i sed nvidia isn't necessarily BETTER than ATI.
