Thanks for help guys, I found some 8500 cards.
Now I only need to know which one to buy..
The best two I found was..

Sapphire ATI Radeon 8500LE 64MB
Hercules 3D Prophet 8500 128MB

Can someone tell me which to buy? also the 128mb is slightly more expensive, o/cer on other post told me "the extra 64mb is a rip off" I'm moving more to buying the 8500LE.

if someone could show me some benchmarks of these two cards please.

well for starters, you have to deal with things like that inside the classified section, so i'd remove that post, and take care of that via PM.

i personally would go with whichever card had the better memory on it. do you have access to the cards? can you get the info on the memory chips?

I deleted it... sry bout that

how much are you looking to spend on them? if it isnt much, go with the non le, I think they have higher clock speeds and more ram never hurts.

But find out first what the clocks are for each of them, and unless there's a huge difference between the two, get the one with 128megs.
