    I currently have an ATI x300 series with 128MB. However, with advancements in game graphics and stuff I can't play the newer games. I'd really like to play Bioshock but my shader version is only 2.0 and Bioshock requires 3.0. I'd also like to get one that would play Crysis. I only have about $20 right now and would love to know a decent video card that doesn't blow a hole in my wallet. However, I know that most graphics cards that are $20 aren't worth it. I am definitely going to save up but would prefer one under $100.

    I got my nVidia 9600 GSO with 768 MB of RAM for about $90 and I can run every game I have on high and very. Hell, I can run Crysis on Good Visuals. (I don't have Vista, so I can't run Best Visuals 'cause XP doesn't have DX10 Support. Stupid Microsoft)

    Try find a 8800 or something.

    What do you expect. DX10 is supposed to be a feature is Vista.
