Windows 7: Looking for a new Video Card

Looking for a new Video Card

I have a Radeon X1300 video card. I noticed that since I installed Windows 7 my FPS in my favorite games has gone down. I want to upgrade my card, I don't have to have the latest $200 video card.

What should I look for when I go shopping at pricewatch?

Thanks

TD

I have installed an NVidia GeForce 9800 GT and I am happy with it but I am not a gamer.

Preferably something with low power requirements. Dell's aren't known to have strong PSU's.

It also depends on what your favourite games and max price limit is.

I love my 9800gtx+ it does what it needs to and copes well with COD4 and crysis engine, I haven't hit a game yet that it doesnt cope with and it runs below 50C

XFX ow has a 9800 gt that is a revision, they call the "green version" because it doesn't require a 6 pin power connection.
