Re: Wife's Card Dead...Need some help.
Don't buy any of the FX cards. Get your son a 9800 Pro 128MB (256-bit) which is around $190. At newegg.com, they have a MSI 9800 Pro 128MB (Retail) for $185, which also comes with 3 full games (Prince of Persia Sands of Time, XIII, URU Ages Beyond Myst). Stay away from any of the FX cards. The FX5200 (any of them) is worse than the GeForce3 Ti500, and the FX5700LE is a much worser card than the Ti4200.
