TBH, I've never heard of that card so I really wouldn't know. By looking at the specs though it doesn't really seem all that great.

Whoa, lag free AND under $200... hmm, that's gonna be a toughy.

Maybe a GeForce 6600GT?

The card is surprisingly pretty good from what I hear with it's ability to play some of the newer games perfectly (With some tweaking done of course).

Nevermind.

For about $250 you could get a GeForce 7950GT Extreme. This card should run those games with no problems whatsoever.

Umm, I guess I should mention that the price varies. I've seen it sell from anywhere around $250-$330. So yea, you might want to take some time surfing the net and looking around. Are you planning on buying a card online or are you going to get one at a store?

That card blows the big fat one.

That card is godly.

And it can overclock like hell. Cool

What are the rest of your specs?

What is this "fire" thing you speak of? I wish they had invented some sort of transport other than walking, so I could come over to your house and ask your advice, since there are no means of communicating over long distances.

(I upgraded my graphics card three days ago. I wasn't sure if I had AGP, let alone PCI-E. It's a 64mbyte card, the OP has 256. My computer is archaic)
