Anyone know what's good in video cards for under $300?

I need a new PCI-ex card. My old one died this weekend after about a year. Well, it might not have died exactly, but just randomly the video output cutoff completely and I ended up reformatting and having to pull the card to get things started properly. It may have just overheated (the heatsink was pretty caked up with dust), but that doesn't explain the lack of functionality what I tried to restart the computer. So I'm thinking it was either fried or the drivers went crazy. Or still possibly, though highly unlikely IMO, it could have been a problem of viral origins.

regardless, after all the frustration I feel like starting fresh. So what's big right now? ATI, Nvidia?

Update: I'm kinda thinking about the XFX - Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT . Anyone heard anything about it, had experience with it?

So do you play online or real world? I believe the real world is damn hard to play, the most I do is a few $$ at a friends house now and again ....and I loose often

Does anyone know of a patch for frostwire? Mines acting up.

A mix of both, generally online tourneys with a live local tournament maybe once or twice if its a good week. I'd agree real world poker is trickier but only because there are often alot less really bad players in casinos whereas online there is never a shortage of terrible players

What? There was a magic M&M jar around here and I didn't know about it? I could have been stuffing my face with little candy coated chocolates instead of running my mouth pestering people this whole time?

Yes there has been a jar of magic M&M's in the cafe for a long time. *while discussing the shocking theft of the magic M&M jar with FSA we continue to ignore the muffled cries coming from behind the counter .....*

Damn, I didn't know that either - have you been hiding them under your shirt, Wellard?

And what's that strange muffled thumping sound from behind the bar anyway?

Oh well...
*shrugs*

Anything harder than M&M's going?

Was just out on a bike ride with my youngest and some guys in a van came driving up behind us and whacked me across the back with a stick. Drive-by beatings - what the hell gives! I guess some people are just bad, no two ways about it.

The only good thing about it is that they did it to me, not him. Hurts like hell, and now I've got a bruise all across my back.

Didn't even get their number, back plate had fallen off (or was taken off) their van - and they just sped off after doing it.

So I guess mine's a double whiskey with ibuprofen on the side.
