    Default Any graphic card recommendations?

    Hi,

    I just got a call from the repairman, he told me that the graphic card is spoilt. Therefore, I need to get a new one to replace it. Any recommendation for a graphic card that is under $200?

    thanks

    ah... low system requirement game... probably GOW will require abit more punch, but i doubt it will need more juice than DMC4.
