Default Good Card?

What do you guys think? Good Card? I'm thinkin about getting it to replace my broken X700 Pro. Should be a good upgrade.

I have a friend with one. I've never used it for games, but he says he likes his a lot. The newegg reviews are pretty much all positive as well... I'd say go for it...

I have the 7600 gt ko, it'* great I have to get another one though cause you can sli them *for computer illiterate people that means I can run two of the same card in my computer so one card only does half of the work while the other does the rest which means better and faster graphics*

Im currently running one as well, and Ive been happy with it so far. What games are you planning on running with it?

I play The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion with mine, and I cant turn the graphics all the way up and play. To play that game well with that card you set things on about a medium/medium high, but its a very graphically intense game.

I havent played any games newer than that, or besides that really. In fact my gaming computer has been reduced to an e-mail, word processing, and web surfing machine because thats about all I have time to do.

basicly all the gaming i do is FEAR, but i plan on doing a little bit more gaming. But i am not a hardcore gamer at all. I was happy playing FEAR with a X700 pro, so i'm sure the graphic power will make me happy.
Thanks for all the input!

I'm sure it will be fine. I run a less powerful 6800 GS and it plays every game I throw at it.
