Okay, time for a video upgrade


I finally got my oldie Cel300@450 on BH6 upgraded to Cel900@1008 (I thought i'd do better but I have problems running higher, not sure they're caused by CPU). So now I need to replace my ancient TNT with something newer and better and not too expensive and that will work with my mobo. Advice please?

Might have a Radeon 7500 on sale somewhere, they were like 115$ last week. Its a good card for the price, shop around, im sure you can get it at that price.

Radeons are lovely but im a nvidia disciple ( ) - a geforce2 mx is what used to be the budget/mid range card - but safely said - its slow - the Geforce 2 MX200 is the SLOWEST 64-BIT BUS AHHH - a GTS is enough for your average user (wel la bit more than the average user then hehe) - i got a Ti (non reference - 250/333 instead of reference 250/400 bleeh who cares) - an im quite pleased with it and how much did it cost including tax?

65! in US$ - i havent got a clue - do the math(s) it was quite cheap - its against my nvidia followers rulebook - but i agree radeons are NICE (also...a bit...mmmmmooooo....yea...)
