    oookay so i've narrowed down my choice of graphics cards top three nice ones, please check out the specs before voting... (sorry for making a new thread [​IMG])
    NOTE: all prices are AFTER shipping and tax

    first is cheapest, but also seems to be... not amazing in performance MSI Radeon HD 4670

    second one is RIGHT at the limit of my price range, seem to have just a little better specs than the first one, and has great reviews Sapphire Radeon HD 4670

    third one has a much nicer GPU, but the other than that its only a little better than the second, it's also a LITTLE over my price limit even after the 10$ rebate Zotac Geforce 9800GT

    please vote on which i should get (keep in mind it's for light gaming (IE medium settings on a 1280X1024 monitor) and post why! if you can find a better one for cheaper, please tell me!

    I'd go for the first one. More memory only adds a few more frames per second, so the first is the best value.
    If you can afford it though, definitely go for the 9800GT - it'll be able to cope with higher settings than the other two.

    I'd go for the 9800GT. Otherwise the MSI Radeon HD 4670. I feel the 1GB on the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4670 is just overkill for a low end card. The extra memory will mostly be useful for higher resolutions, seeing as thaty card is weak at high resolutions anyway, it won't be needed.

    GeForce as well. I have a 9800 GTX+ and it's awesome.
