    Not everyone wants to drop $200-$300 for the latest and greatest. I know the 9800 would handle everything I throw at it well enough.

    Nobody is saying spend 300 bucks on a Video Card.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102747R

    Much better card quality.

    +1

    MSI is the worst Nvidia card producers.

    If you buy one. Make sure its in this order.

    1: XFX
    2: Evga
    3: PNY

    Judging from your top 3, it sounds like you only shop at Best Buy.

    Thanks a lot for your consideration, Morg.
    I'd buy it if I had any computer budget at all.
