    new gfx card.

    okay, i was looking for new graphics card and came across these 2.
    but being as i am, idk which is better.
    and im not going over $150.

    Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N978-TR GeForce 9800 GT Akimbo 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    or

    Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-98GEY3G-FSL GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    what should i get?

    the second one. from that list.

    But might i suggest something a little more powerful?
    Newegg.com - Palit NE3TS25EFHD02 GeForce GTS 250 E-Green 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    It would be like $10 more at the most. But its only like 200MHz faster. Also more memory.

    Yeah there is a lot of stuff you can get for less than $150. I just did a quick search though.


    nvm

    Early in the morning risin' to the street

    Got to find a reason why my money's all gone

    I have the ASUS EAH4870 in my other machine. I must admit it is really good for gaming. the price is out standing for this! I would go for this one! It also is a dust proove fan!!

    800 Stream Processing Units and 1 gb memory and good budget! I would go for this.

    Not true. I bought a card for £143 and no lag no stuttering. Worked fine
