I'm wondering what the best graphics card for under a 100 dollars is?

I'm planning to use it for gaming.

AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2GHz Triple-Core Processor

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Kingston Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Western Digital Caviar Blue 160GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (have an 1TB external I use for most of my extra files and storage)

Gigabyte GeForce GT 620 1GB Video Card

Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer

2 extra 120mm fans

HEC Orion 485-Watt Power Supply

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Full

This is a very general question when you have not supplied any other specs of your system.
We would need to know what motherboard, PSU and how much memory you have to make a acceptable suggestion. :whistling:

First off your PSU is sub standard with all the reviews I read but this one HERE is very detailed on the internal parts of the PSU. Not sure I would trust it.

Your current video card is PCI-E 2.0 interface Nvidia geforce 660
Are you wanting to stay with the nvidia?

nvidia isn't a deal breaker, just something I had lying around from before.

Though out of stock this HERE is the newer model of mine which I play a lot of FPS type games like COD, MW, Crysis, Far Cry and have no problems at all with it.

Just a note, amazon would be the preferred source of my card (have gift card)

this is also due to the fact I'm in Nunapitchuk Alaska and the shipping costs tend to go fairly high with just about any other retailer...($30)
