    Your being very unrealistic there. If you want a descent graphics card that can handle todays games then i doubt you'd be able to get anythin below $150. But for under $50 i guess you could get a ge force 4 mx series:o
    What the fcuk happened to my sig?

    Just cause it has a lot of memory doesnt mean its a good card. ITs really the chipset that matters, and the 7500 is not a good chipset. The 8500 is still only comparable to a GF4 MX card.

    I just upgraded from a 7500 64mb to my new AIW 9700 Pro 128mb !!! HUGE DIFFERENCE !!! The 7500 is not that great of a video card...There are much better choices in that price range.

    yes the radeon 8500 was a very good card in its day but the ti4200 is x8 now so it has that extra bandwidth which I know people say dose'nt matter but I have an agpx8 card and mobo and I have seen a big difference, but like I say in its day the 8500 was in a class of its own and i dont think there was any other card could beat it in its day as it was the gforce mx in them days and then th g3ti game out but even that didint out proform it.
