    Check out NewEgg.

    They're 500% beter than PC Connection.
    And have better prices.

    Brands that are worth buying for a GeForceX card:

    LeadTek
    PNY
    Gigabyte
    Gainward
    Abit
    Asus

    Stay away from brands you haven't hard about before. They usually have dodgy warranties.

    I have a LeadTek GeForce3 Ti200 - 128mb card. I got it at NewEgg - for like $150 in May.

    I have no problems with it -- no problems playing high graphic games, etc.

    Stay away from MX cards - they're crap.

    I've used http://www.directron.com/silurogf4.html it is a 128mb card i'm guessing they just copied the specs from the 64mb version.

    Just saying it's sketchy to have that card listed at 128 but the real mem is listed in the specs...

    Product name says 128 MB...although granted I don't see that in the specs.

    Not really.

    64MB of ram isn't that much.

    Waste of $, imo.

    I already get 70 FPS in Q3 which is what I play the most, but in SS:SE I get about 20 and that's at the lowest res/details. I don't want to spend more than $200. My current card is a Geforce256 32 MB (OEM).

    Edit: in the UT2k3 demo I get 30 FPS when not too much is going on, and that's at 640x480
