    I don't know that much about graphics cards but I thought higher the number, better the card, now it seems to have reset itself and gone back to 200?

    Can anyone just give me a list of graphics cards in order of best to worst so I can compare computers?

    You talking about extreme highs and lows, or just your basics?? Because there are 1000-2000$ GPUs that really wouldn't help you compare computers...

    Ah, cards like GTS 250, 9800GTX, ATI 4850 stuff (I hope I am getting this numbers right). I am assuming they are mid-range graphics cards?

    The rule higher the number the better works when you're comparing within the same generation of cards, ie. 9800GT > 9600GT. The generations pretty much go in order, 5500, 6600, 7600, 8600, 9600, and now the 200 series.

    Yeah.. The most expensive consumer level cards are the GTX 295 and 4870x2 which are nowhere near that expensive, you're thinking enterprise cards for CAD work and the like..

    GTS200 Series GTS250(Re branded 9800GTX+)>GTS220(between 9500GT and 9600)

    I can't stand the whole numbering scheme myself. It seems all a plan to make you think that the more numbers the better and if its got an X then great. I wish they would go to a number plan like 1, 1A, 1B, 2, 2A, etc. but they probably wont because the way they have it now is good for confusing people into paying more.
