A contender:

Subjective area and lots of opinions.  I stayed away from mail in rebates.  They aren't of much use to me.

I recommend a 7900gs also but i would go with this one Its $155 but its a little bit faster and has a lifetime warranty. I just built my brother a new computer using this card (also ordered from newegg) and it performs very well.

If $150 is too much you can get a 7600gt for $120

G'day The TechGuysNYC,

As an alternative you could consider any ATI 1650XT GPU card for that kind of $$s.  You can have a look using this link (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000380048&bop=And&SrchInDesc=X1650XT&Page=1)

ATI GPUs have been proven to out perform Nvidia's, although that doesn't automatically make them popular...

Anandtech's comparison of GeForce 7900GS and Radeon 1650XT.  Don't think you'll find that 1650XT is superior in any test and is markedly inferior in most.

ATI and nVidia jockey for superiority.  Right now it's nVidia.  Both are good cards, but nVidia has the performance edge at present.

I will go with the EVGA GeForce 7900GS bc of the lifetime warranty. Any significant difference between the two?

No.  EVGA is a good product and my preference of the 2 as well.  Was trying to "stay under $150."

Here's EVGA lifetime warranty terms.  If you are buying for resale, may be a problem.  Still get one year anyway.
