    A Radeon 9600Pro or XT would do well, or a Gefore FX5700 Ultra. Those are both DX9.

    A cheaper DX8 alternative would be a Geforce4 ti4200

    what do you consider 'reasonably priced'? how much you are willing to spend makes all the difference.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    How I wish people could understand that instead of just asking "reasonably priced"

    this question is pretty much answered in the ATI vs. NVIDIA thread, i think, since this is the exact question *I* had (more or less) (and there's still a few unanswered questions in that thread, btw)

    and the best answer right now seems to be, drum roll, please:


    radeon 9600 pro all-in-wonder

    9600 all in wonder..is for people that want to watch tv and record tv and play games on it. But i think that speed is just looking for a new card that is better than his 7500. You can try ti4200, radeon 9600 non pro, 9600 pro, 9600xt, or a fx5700. : peace2:

    how much is the 9600 AIW?
    BTW Reasonably priced is something that parents or family wont be like 'holy crap' at if i ask for it for xmas....so i think 130 bucks would be the limit....

    For that price you'd be in the GF4 Ti4200 range but for a little bit more (around $150) ya could get an R9600Pro with DX9 support.

    The 9600 aiw is around 220-270..so i guess that is out of your price range, but i don't think you need a aiw card cause you are just looking for a descent upgrade and not planning to watch tv on your computer right?
    So, as wiggo suggest, a ti4200 or a 9600.
