8500LE or GF3 Ti200 (can be found occassionally for under $100, unless you go to the FS/FT forum here and they usually run $80-90 used). both are amazing cards. plenty of options.

;) If you're in the US then the Radeon8500LE is the clear winner (ATI tries to rip off us guys in Europe & Australia). It supports all DX8 functions and is as fast as a GF3TI500 but with much better dual-view and image quality. Do bear in mind the non-ATI (eg Hercules etc) Radeons are clocked lower and use cheaper RAM, unless the savings are great, get a true ATI.

:) If you want nVidia then the GF3TI200 aren't that far behind Radeon8500LE once o/c is taken in to account. Of course GF3's do all DX8 functions too, but GF4MX cards DON'T!

:) Another consideration is the SiS Xabre 400. It's faster than a GF4MX440/GF2TI and also does the DX8 functions. Can't say about dual-view or image quality but it is a great performer, although still in its early (if not beta) stages.

;) If it was my money then a Radeon8500LE would be my choice, unless the GF3TI200 was a fair bit cheaper.

so hard to choose!
the thing is, it's going into my HTPC...
people suggest the All in wonder Radeons for that
but people also suggest if you're gonna game on it, go with a GF card...

SiS Boards have great image quality. They remind me of the G400 from Matrox.

PS: For gaming, you should be looking at nothing other than a Radeon 8500 or GF4 Ti 4200 and up. NVidia's DVI output is far better than their analog.
