Video card recommendations for MOH (games)

This is the recommended video cards from EA Games. Which one is the best 'bang for the buck'? I know the x800 is probably the best, but which one is anyone using, or could they recommend?

Mark

The first thing to check is to ensure that the computer has a supported 64 MB video card with full DirectX 8.1 Support. The game is extremely demanding and currently only the following cards are supported:

ATI Radeon 8500, 9000 Pro, 9200, 9500, 9600, 9700, 9800
ATI Radeon x300, x600, x800
Nvidia GeForce 3, GeForce3 Ti 200
Nvidia GeForce4 Ti 4200 with AGP8X, GeForce Ti 4600, GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE
Nvidia GeForceFX 5200, 5300, 5500, 5600, 5700, 5750, 5800, 5900, and 5950
Nvidia GeForce 6800

Please note that the GeForce4 MX series of video cards are not supported.

I do believe the best bang for buck is the 6800 GT...wouldn't have to upgrade for awhile...a long while..

but if you don't want to spend $400 a decent 9800pro (around 200) or a 5900XT (good overclocker, and should be less then 200)

x800 pro works great, but yea the 9800 pro is another great card. and not to expensive, i prefer radeon cards to geforce, so i wouldnt recommend any of them

actually not sure on the price of this, but the 6600GT agp version, blows the 9800pro outta the water...no bullshit. all benches have shown that, if you would like some proof, i'll get it for you. yes the 128 bit memory hurts it, but it also has Gddr3 mem, at 1000mhz, and the core is at 500mhz, so it's a great buy. but then again i'm not sure on the price.

MOH isn't very demanding. 128MB 9600SE ($50-70) will run it. As would this for $40:

I play MOH flawlessly at 1600x1200 resolution with my GeForce 4 Ti4200 with 64 megs. Don't know why you're sweating the vid card cause even an older one like mine is plenty.

nVidia 6600 GT would probably be your best bet. One of the best cards you can purchase at ~$200 range.

No doubt you could get it to look better with a better card. My point is that it's not a new game and it shouldn't be taxing any decent vid card.
