The Radeon's are generally better options at pretty much every price point at the moment. /shrug

I have a ATI Radeon 1GB PCI-E HD 5770 Video Card Sitting in my hands right now, not being used. It's my bosses from when we bought this Piece of shit dell, and upgraded the Vid card to a Quatro 2000D. I can talk to him and see if he'll sell it to you for cheap, If you're interested in a new card still.

If you can get your money back on it, I could probably get it to you for less than 100.
