There's also cloud computing, some of which is free, so hard to beat on price/performance.
So, it depends what you want to run, and how much. Try some out and see what you enjoy most or least.
See the reference info for lots more background info.

Thank you! I'll stick to my current video card then, but will probably invest in something better along the road. I tried cloud computing too and enjoying a free month, not bad, price-wise :)
