    According to the game I bought I need a Radeon 8500 or above. What is that equivelent to in GeForce? I only have $100 to spend on a new card.

    why do you want a Geforce, you can get a good Radeon for under $100.....

    Also check out your nearest Fry's Electronics Store or www.newegg.com

    I recommend the Radeon 9200 or Kaser's 128MB with At Radeon 9600SE 3d Chip

    Radeon 9200 sucks. You can probably find a Geforce4 ti4200 128mb around somewhere used for under $100.

    Edit: Yeah, AMD's suggestion works out.

    Forget that...

    Just get a Radeon 9600.

    A 9200 or 9600SE would be wastes of money.

    Nice system, BTW.
