Nvidia by EVGA Gtx 460 1gb. EVGA can superclock (OC) them for you if you'd like with their upgraded card.

ok im going to throw an ATI card in the mix (as i cant see why anybody isnt a fan or a specific brand as they all do the same thing lol and i chop and change all the time)

the ATI 6850 is about 120, was a good card at launch a couple of years ago, however with recent updates the card is even faster, which rarely happens with updates. it will be all similarly priced Nvidia offerings and is pc formats recommended budget gpu

Most ATI cards are better priced. However, if you are looking for greater compatability with games and certain applications, and better support, Nvidia is the choice card. Nvidia's drivers tend to be better, the software (installation and otherwise) more user friendly, and it tends to be better for anything dealing with 3D pictures (if one might have that capability)

well i can say hands down i have never had compatibility issues with ATI cards.

Ive had a mix of ATI and NVIDIA cards from early 2000's upwards. I just change back and forth depending on which card is the best buy at the time of me wanting one.

the 460 is a very quiet and cool card, while being quite amazing. I owned one before. you could even get another later on down the road and hook it up for a pretty nice sli.
