Video Cards

Postby Maxim » Fri Jul 29, 2005 8:09 pm

Hello all once again.

I was planning on upgrading my video card and don't know much about them. I plan on spending up to $200 and was wondering what some suggestions would be and if htere was any place online where they are cheaper.

The most demanding this out the video card will probably be video games. I don't plan on editing video's or anything.

Thanks! :blink:

nomally yes, but the ati x700 doesnt compare to the nvidia 6600gt.Now once you get over 200 bucks ati is the way togo imo.
