    well i RMA'd my graphics card a Sapphire Radeon x1800 GTO, and i found out that newegg is out of stock. I really liked the card before it started acting up. so basically what i want to know is for less than $200 what is the best graphics card to buy? or should i try to get another x1800 gto or should i try a x850 or should i go back to nvidia?

    Under $200 the GTO is the best, but if you want to spend a little more you could get a x1800xt or x1900GT.

    GTO or Nividia, Unless you have a agp slot I would never think about a X800 or X850 series card from ati.

    You should never count on unlocking because its never a sure thing. Also the x1900GT is only $235 after rebate and vastly superior.

    do you think that the x1800 gto would bottleneck my cpu, and if not would the x1900GT bottleneck it any, right now i have that P4 530 up to 3825mhz, and so far it's stable. and how much better is the x1900gt? either in 3dmark points or in just overall gaming?

    Nice overclock. And it's stable too. :)
