    I'm looking for a graphics card that will be able to play games such as Sims 2&3, Bioshock 1&2, COD, Mirror's Edge, Portal, etc on at least medium graphics settings.

    My budget is around $100 so I know I won't be able to get that great of a graphics card but I'm looking for the best graphics card that I can get for that price. I would also prefer a card with an nVidia GPU and it needs to have a PCI Express 2.0 x16 interface. I have a 650W PSU so it should be able to power any graphics card in that price range.

    What graphics card would you recommend?

    Thanks

    You can find some good prices for GTS250 cards on ebay in and around your $100 target.

    If you are a gamer and like to play games a lot, then Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2 is best for you. This graphic card from Nvidia is a uber-powered, dual GPU-based graphics card that powers extreme HD gaming and provides a complete, high definition entertainment.
