Re: Best 200$ graphics card?
Anyways, as for the video card itself, I'd say definitely the Radeon 6850. The 6870 is only slightly better, but costs $30 more. You could easily overclock the 6850 to overcome that difference, and best of all you'll spend less than $160 for it. I am brand agnostic btw, nvidia - ati - doesn't matter, whatever is best bang for your buck, and at that price point, it's definitely the radeon 6850.
If I wanted to upgrade right now, the 6850 is definitely what I would get. I'm waiting til skyrim comes out before I upgrade though.
