BFG GeForce GTX 295
REVIEW

BFG GeForce GTX 295 ( PCI-e 2.0, 1.7GB, GDDR3)

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 295 is the single fastest 3D card on the market, and for a relatively aggressive price. Added bonuses like power efficiency and PhysX support sweeten the deal, but even without those extra benefits, we'd still recommend this card for its processing power and comparative value.

EVGA e-GeForce 8600 GTS
REVIEW

EVGA e-GeForce 8600 GTS ( PCI-e, 256MB)

If you care more about HD movie watching than gaming and you need a new video card for the task today, we recommend a 3D card like this EVGA with Nvidia's newest mainstream graphics chip. Gamers can get more performance value from Nvidia's higher-end 8800 cards, but for anyone, it would be a good idea to wait to see what's new from ATI in just a few short weeks.

If you're a Mac user who's been looking for a way to add live TV and DVR functionality to your computer, the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid could be the solution you've been waiting for.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2
REVIEW

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 ( PCI-e 2.0, 2GB, GDDR3)

Even if it's a relative power hog, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 brings so much speed and utility to the table it's hard for us to recommend another midrange 3D card. Only the particularly power conscious or those who play games with known multichip scaling issues should look elsewhere.

BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC
REVIEW

BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC

The BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra OC is clearly a high-performance video card, but the overclocked settings don't do much.

ATI Radeon X1950 Pro
REVIEW

ATI Radeon X1950 Pro

If you're looking for a gaming card to run Vista and play most games, ATI's Radeon X1950 Pro will get you there, but not perfectly, and its real-world pricing is higher than we'd like. We're more interested to see ATI's next-gen cards use the newly refined CrossFire dual-card technology, debuted here, but that will have to wait.

ATI Radeon X800 Pro
REVIEW

ATI Radeon X800 Pro

If you can live a few frames per second behind those with the highest-end graphics cards, the ATI Radeon X800 Pro saves you $100 and still smokes most of the competition.
