Greetings

I am looking for the best video card that I can get primarily for gaming (everything: roller coaster tycoon, madden, far cry) for a budget price.

What would you suggest buying with around $100, trying not to exceed $120?

I'm looking at the Radeon 9600XT and wondering what you think of that.

I currently have a 9200se, so there will be much improvement I assume.

9600 is OK, I had one for a few weeks, until it choked horribly trying to run doom3. it will be better than your current card. check out this site and do a comparison of specs-

many folks here recommend going with a minimum of an 9800 pro, or its nvidia counterpart (not sure what model compares).

sounds like your budget is your big constraint here.
