9000 pro price should go down when 9900 comes out.

Get a 9500 pro when the 9900 comes out. Spend whatever the difference is between that and 130. It's worth it.

the 9000 series isn't really anny good for gaming.

Get a 9500 pro (it's $190 dollars at www.newegg.com). Don't get a non pro card, they suck hard.

How was i supposed to know that, you said you didn't want to spend more than 130 not that you couldn't. No reason to get angry.

You should save up then or look for another alternative whitin 130 dollars.

my friend has a 9000pro 128mb and I tested it out this weekend it worked pretty damn well with all the games i played on it (GTA3, Mafia, NfS hot persuit2, ect.) I just ordered one myself because im short on cash and only had to spend $94 on it. Im going to get a 9700pro or better this summer.

We know about it. Seems like everyone is riding the ATI boat because of the Radeon 9700. Nvidia cards are very good choices especially if you're strapped for cash.

I just had ALOT of problems with a sapphire 128mb Radeon 9000pro so I just ordered my second Nvidia card. I ordered a Geforce 4 ti4200 128mb which really did alot better then a 128mb r9000pro in 3d tests. It was $145 with shipping so it appears to be in your price range.

I'm using a Radeon 9000 Pro. Runs all my games smoothly. Pretty cheap in price, shouldn't be more than 145$.
