    Hi folks

    I was planning on upgrading to a new 3d card very soon. currently i have a geforce 2 ultra card, and with 1.8 p4 processor, 1gig ddr ram, soundblaster live value.

    I was planning on only spending about $150 to $200, and i'll be going threw price watch. I want the 3d card for gaming ofcourse so i'd like a card that can play newer games very well, and future games like doom 3 and halflife 2.

    I currently have my eyes set on a ATI 9600 XT 256 card for 157 dollars, but i'm not sure if thats my best choice or not. Anyone have suggestions on the perfect card for me? it appears that the 9800 pro's and XT's are out of my price range except for maybe the 128's.. And i haven't been looking at geforce lately so i'm not sure if any from nvidia's are worth getting instead.... from what i read lately sounds like ATI is the best now.

    please if you have any suggestions on what i should get i'd greatly appreciate it.. i'd like to order tonight or tomorrow.

    thanks
