uh, nvidia is better, because nvidia, unlike radeon, doesn't completely suck.
while it may cost more, at least you got what you paid for.

actualy not true Valve which has the best pc graphical games asks the person to have Radeon cards. Nvidia is a good card company only thing though is they cost more for the same exact thing.

OMG I totally lol'd.
Don't get me wrong, Valve's games are good and all, but best graphical wise?
HAVE YOU EVER FREAKIN' SEEN CRYSIS?
and I'm not certain, but I think crysis requires an nvidia, but I'd need conformation of that.

Crysis doesn't require a NVIDIA. It does have NVIDIA in the loading screen though.

Never heard of a 30 dollar graphics card, unless you want an older/used model.

You can get a NVIDIA 8600 for 30 bucks. That's what my older laptop used, which you criticized for having "high graphics" :P

If you're referring to the first part of my post, search on google. If you're referring to the second part, it's when we were chatting, and I said "brb. gotta go play crysis", and you were like "dag nab your fancy computer with good graphics" or something like that.

Also if it doesn't have fans, I recommend getting some and if it does I recommend more (At least 3 total if possible). One thing you can never slack on unless you install them wrong. I've had problems before due to overheating.

iF your getting a new video card. Your going to have to get a new PSU ( power supply unit). If its a really high end card, get a 450-650W psu. Anything less will have some problems.

Anything nVidia 6400 (6200 at the minimum) and up is good.

Yes, well, its pretty obvious that everyone here (except for you) prefers Nvidia over Radeon.
Your attempts at "showing people the light" have failed. Good day sir.

And what 200 dollar card are you referring to? My old NVIDIA 8600 could run Crysis well.
