Hey, haven't been on here in a while. I just want to say how great FPSC X10 is becoming and I can't wait to just build a computer around it.

I'm looking for a graphics card capable with DX10, good enough for gaming, but just around $100. I looked at Amazon and I found an ATI card with GREAT potentiel but I'm really not sure about it doing so good with gaming.

It's Diamond Viper ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO 512MB

Or even Diamond Viper ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO OVERCLOCKED 512MB PCIE GDDR2 Video Card

The ATI Radeon cards are very cheap and well rounded, not so much specialised on gaming, but all round work. While the card may have an overclocked core/clock speed, it runs at GDDR2, which is a bit old. I'm not saying the card won't run DirectX 10 applications, just not as well. You can get GDDR4 2600 XT at 512mb with very high clock/core speeds, but i'm unaware of foreign pricing. Check out the RX2600XT Diamond 512, It's around $300 AUD, which goes at about $269.95 USD, but it all depends on shops and retail, australia is a complete ripoff compared to the US -_- even without exchange rates.

I have the GDDR3 version and it runs very well new games. At 1280x1024 I play Medal of Honor Airborne with full specs, as an example.
