6800gs is the best bang for the buck and I recommend it. Evga is a fine product. Just double check to make shure your motherboard has pci express 16x. Almost all does but just double check, sometimes manufacturers can be weird.

Ok thanks a lot. but i was wondering if you knew how it ran more demanding games such as cod2. Yes my motherboard does have a pci-e. Where can i check if it is 16x. Im almost positive it is.

PCI-E only comes in one speed(well the gfx interface components anyway). It will play it quite well you should manage high settings no bother, and should play all the other new games out, without trouble.

Ok im going to get the 6800 gs 256 mb 256 bit and im buying a 20.1 inch lcd monitor. I was just wondering if these two are a good match. I was also wondering if that card is compatible with the monitor and with the power suply of my computer. The monitor is a 20.1 inch westinghouse. I also have an amd motherboard. I think. It is an amd athlon x2 processor.

You may also want to check out the x800gto2. They can be overclocked well and reach x850xt PE speeds.
