    Which videocard should I get?

    For some odd reason it seems like every game out there has a grudge against my Geforce4MX, so now I'm off to buy a new video card.

    Anyone got any recommendations? I'm not looking for anything grand, as long as its better than my current one (Geforce4MX). My price range is average, anything under $200 or so.

    Recently I bought a Radeon 9600XT 256MB for a bit less than that price. It is pretty nice. My housemate got one too (upgraded from a Geforce4MX I think, but I'm not sure) and now he can run Half-Life 2 at 1600x1200 pretty well, or 1280x1024 with some nice antialiasing and anisotropic filtering. I think the performance is about 20% less than the 9800XT which is about 4 times the price.

    Check out Sharky extreme and Tom's Hardware guides for cards. There are so many of them out there it's hard to suggest one.
