    I have that card and it does a fair job of most games. I can play BF2 and 2142 quite well, and even Oblivion on medium. I'm pretty happy with it. (y)

    i posted an article, i have no idea where you would get one. this article was written in early Dec 2006, I'm sure with that glowing review everyone and their uncle went out and bought one. there may very well be none left on the planet i mean after all its agp and agp is on the way out. also i imagine that after that review the price probably spiked up, you got low supply and high demand, free market forces are a beeoch.

    here ya go, read the summary from the same article:

    Summary
    So there you have it folks, these are the best cards for the money this month. Now all that's left is finding them in retail, and that part is up to you. They will almost certainly be cheapest online, but sometimes large retail outlets might surprise you with a good sale. Don't worry too much about brands because all of the cards out there stick pretty close to Nvidia and Ati's reference. Just pay attention to price, warranty, and the manufacturer's reputation for honoring that warranty if something goes wrong. Remember also that the stores don't follow this list, we follow them! Things will change over the month and you'll probably have to adapt your buying strategy to changing prices. Good luck!
