Ok, I'm just curious where everyone stands in the budget video card war.

I voted Radeon 8500. Simply because it's the best card under $150.00 right now, atleast from everything i've seen.

If I could buy one of those video cards for a hundred bucks up here in Canada I would break the bank and sell them to the US.. :P

I chose the geforce3 ti 200 because I think the Gf4 Mx series are horrible for their price and I prefer Geforces to radeons.

I respect that opinion, but exactly what does the GeForce ti200 have over a R8500? The 8500 has better visual quality than the ti200, and even ti500. In FPS they aren't really comparable, because Radeons give better visual quality unless you tweak drivers to go down to the level of a GF3, but mostly they get better fps decided on the game. But MX's suck, only a poor fool would buy one!

err. correction: 8500 beats ti500 and ti200 in framerates in majority of games at most resolutions.

A Radeon 8500 for $100? Where? Until then I'll stick with my Ti200.

I have 2 Xtasy GeForce 3 Ti 200 and I have zero complaints. You should have specified in the poll that it was an 8500LE that you are talking about, as the true 8500 is still above $150.00. 8)
