In the barrel!
I'm currently using a CL Annihilator Pro DDR board. It works good, but I feel it's starting to get a bit long in the tooth. I'm thinking of getting either a GF2 GTS, MX or maybe even one of the Radeons. Just not too sure which one, so I thought I'd pose the ever present question. Which card to get for under $200?
FWIW, I don't watch DVD's on my PC and have no plans on doing so. I just use for playing games mostly (UT, HL, Nascar3 type stuff.) Any suggestions?
See sig below for my rig. Thanks to all who respond.

I wouldn't replace a GeForce DDR card with an MX. You'll get only minimal framerate gains (if any at all) and only at lower resolutions (800x600 and lower). I'd go with no less than a GeForce 2 Pro 64 MB DDR at this point if you're wanting to keep the card very long.

Agreed, skip the MX. It might even bench worse than a GF 256 DDR! Of course, it'll use half the power, and broadcast half as much heat... Perhaps the Kyro II is worth investigating..
