Any suggestions for any cards in the market now, that can replace the capability of of a 3870 card? it died on me and my spare 9600Gt card is simply not sufficient to power the games i play..

i dun need the card to be future proof and i have no preference btw ati or nvidia cards.. budget is preferably below 200?

i using asus P5K SE mobo, 2gig ram n OS is vista

TIA!
