    Can I get some suggestions for the best nvidia cards under $100. I do a
    moderate amount of gaming, so I'd like the best card capable of running
    games better than average.

    Thanks for any suggestions,

    You need to specify agp or pci-e. To get better than average performance
    from an Nvidia card you'd need to spend a little more. How about $160 for a
    6600GT or maybe $120 for a 6600. I've seen some ATI 9800pro getting close
    to your price range but those are ATI. In the $100 range, I'd go ATI.

    Thanks Dave,
    I need an AGP card. I know the price isn't that high, but I'm replacing a
    GeForce GTS card...so, I'm really looking for something better than the GTS
    and under $100.
    My GTS card just went on the blink and I need to replace it asap. So, I'll
    probably just rely on the groups opinion for this minor upgrade.

    Any other suggestions?

  4. About the best you'll do is either an ATI 9600XT, or the
    Nvidia 6200. Newegg has both these cards under $100.00. Make sure the
    6200 is the 128bit interface version though. Newegg has a PNY 6200 AGP
    that is around $73.00, and the reviews say it can be unlocked into a
    6600 non-GT.
