    So I have some gift cards and I am trying to see if i can max them out by buying a video card for a spare computer I have laying around. If you guys could help me find the best "bang for my buck" that would be awesome.

    Conditions:
    $125 in gift cards (don't want to go much higher then $140)
    Going to be used for playing games (all kinds)
    Has to be from Amazon.ca (I live in Canada)

    I'm not much of a Radeon card guy, so I don't know much about them. What would be the disadvantages and advantages of going Radeon? As well, what sort of limitations would this put on a person? ie; play crysis on medium settings?


    EDIT: I was looking at the 560 too. might be worth the extra money.

    Maybe I should have put 2GB under conditions. I'm kinda nervous about getting a card with less then 1GB. From what I have learned, with newer games, 2GB no less is the best way to go. No?

    That was the one I was looking at last night. It should be pretty decent.
