Well the best card your going to get under $250 is the 9800PRO, if you HAVE to have Nvidia I suggest saveing a tiny bit more and get a 6800NU for about $290 on newegg (and it comes with farcry) or find it somewhere cheaper.

The cheapest 5900 XT on Newegg is only $174.

or

if you don't already have Far Cry, this is a good deal.

Wherever I happen to be.
Get the gainward gloden sample or the BFG OC. Both come with higher stock settings. The gainward is $194.

This is the NV section. If he wanted an open opinion it would be in the general video section. He dosent need a reason why. Some people just like NV and it suits them. Me personally. I would get the 9800 or 9700 even as I like the faster dx9. I am using my buddys 5800NU till I get a new card and its killing me.

I sold the ultra figuring it was a power supply issue that my pc keeps blue screening during boot, and I eventually tried my buddys 5800 which does the same thing. I figured I would get an x800pro vivo and flash it and save some money on a big PS. Now I wonder if its the MB or if the PS just sucks so bad it dosent matter what card I have. My MB is new because the other died. In FL we get alot of lightning and I have killed about 6 MB's due to electric surges.
