I don't know what card to get. I am thinking of spending roughly $170AU. I don't know which card to get, what make, and what designer (I will probably get an http://article.pchome.net/2004/03/17/ati-logo-300.JPG.) However I need help.

You'll probably be looking at a Radeon 9600 Pro for that much.

I don't know how to convert aussie to US, but NewEgg has a 5800nu for $109. That should take the 9600 Pro easily I would think.

ATM for around $170aus you're looking at R9550's, R9600's (non Pro/XT) or FX5500, FX5600 and FX5700LE's but if you can get about $200-220aus then R9600P's and FX5700's will give better performance but do checkout this Australian price search engine, http://www.razorprices.com/, as it will help you locate something suitable.

That's American prices... Have you ever considered that Australia has completely different prices?

I apologize. I did not realize that Aussie's could not buy off of NewEgg. I did realize that Australia has different currency, but I have no clue about the exchange rate.

The exchange rate can be found at numerous online sites (even sites that will do it for you), but the exchange rate for money is almost irrelevant when it comes to the exchange rate for computer hardware.

Unfortunately, only people in the U.S., Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Armed Forces can order from Newegg. I'll bet it would make things easier from people in other countries, even with shipping charges..
