    Lightbulb GFX Card Recommendations

    Hi
    Im Looking at upgrading GFX cards but am not sure what to go for, i am currently looking at this but if anyone could recommend a good card for around $300 that would be a great help as last time what i thought was a good buy turned out to not to be a good buy as it was an older GPU and not enough pipelines and pixels and whatever else.
    Thanks

    That's probably the best card you're going to get for the money.

    I'd be happy with it.

    What a crappy website, the 'Details' section really didn't tell me anything about the card.

    "# 956 million transistors on 55nm fabrication process"

    So!? Does it do what it's supposed to do? Yes? Ok then...

    "# 800 stream processing units"

    What the hell is a stream processing unit?
