Welcome to PF1 :)
what type of motherboard do you have? what are you wanting to do with your pc? are you a gamer or what?

For not much more you can get a GeForce 6600 GT, these cards will outperform a Radeon 9600XT, and are at the moment the best bang-for-your-buck video card.

have a look at www.pricespy.co.nz

I would definitely recommend the 6600GT 128MB Version. Get PCI-Express if your motherboard has a PCI-E slot. The 6600GT offers the best performance per dollar in todays graphics card market. You can pick one up on Trademe for between $300-$400. New they cost around $350-$450. The best model is the Leadtek Extreme TDH: http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=338699 ($410)

What a laugh!

Get the 6600GT if your budget is your primary concern. One can't go past the Leadtek Extreme version selling for just $410! If brute power is your primary concern then you're going to want the X850XT. It kicks the ass.

Then again, if you can wait and if you have the money... Get the upcoming R520. It's being hailed as the Graphics Dominator of 2005-2006.
