Tigerdirect is currently selling these older cards for pretty cheap. It may be an upgrade for someone or it would make a good backup card for when your main card goes out. I have an old 7800GT in the closet which is extremely nice to have! It should be plenty to play COD 4, TF2, and ET. I'd want something more for the new games though. You have to have a PCI-e motherboard to use this.

This shows a review between the 9800GT (Which is a step up from this card, but same generation) vs the new cards:

This Is a $25 PCIe video card, $10 rebate after buying. There's a lot of these 'cheap' cards lately.

Performance Is very low in games. My $50 AGP GeForce 6600 GT rates better.

That card is CONSIDERABLY better than a 6600gt. The 9600 GSO is basically a 8800GTS. It is faster than a 7800gt and the 7800gt is much faster than the AGP 6600GT. So for people with old videocards this may be an upgrade for the price of a meal. Again it is old technology and it is only good for low graphic games.

I've had several cards that have failed within the past 5 years or so. It is nice having a backup card to play ET and browse the net while my card is being rmaed by the manufacturer as I stated above. It's nice to have a backup and this one will play many of the FA hosted games instead of being down a couple weeks.
