A ati video card under $200

#1

Is there an ati video card under $200. I currently got a Radeon X1600/X1650 Series card (512 MB) and also what the price of a 500Gb hard drive?

Where are you located? You can check out newegg.ca for canada and newegg.com for the u.s. You can find lots at tigerdirect.ca, I purchased the radeon hd 3850 256mb for $128.99 plus taxes and before the $30.00 rebate from tigerdirect.ca.


#3

Do you need PCI-E or AGP? The HD4850 is well within that range, and the performance is pretty good for it being a mid-range card.

I assume you live in the US, so check out newegg.com for the prices of 500gb hard drives. I think they are as cheap as ~ $70 right now depending on the brand.

Fry’s has a Segate SATA 500 GB 16mb Cache ST3500641AS-RK on sale for $69.99.
I picked one up yesterday. It’s an older 7200.9 but good enough for my daughters computer.

Depending on if you want AGP or PCI or PC-E etc…

If you live in Sydney or Melbourne (or surrounding cities), you can also visit computer fairs/swap meets which will likely shave about $20 off the prices & save P&H :wink:

Most important question should be, what do you need the card for. Do you do graphics stuff… Are you a casual gamer? Are you a hard core Gamer???


#10

I’m mostly a casual gamer that looking for a better card than a Radeon X1600/X1650 Series card and under $200.i was thinking getting a Asus Nvidia PCIe EN9600GT/HTDI/512M


#11

Take a look at some of the video card comparisons (ie tomshardware.com), and use that to make your decision… I would think that your 1600 would be good enough for casual gaming…

You can pick up a Samsung 500GB/16MB HDD for about $100.
You can pick up a Samsung 1000GB/32MB HDD for about $160.
From my experience, the 1000GB is about 50% faster.

Your call.


#13

but do u reckon the nVidia GeForce 8800 GT can work on my dell dimension 4700


#14

What’s your Dell express support tag code?

I’d be hesitant to put any beefy video cards in the dell … the Power Supply Unit might need to be replaced, and not sure if they use ATX standard power supplies.
