Well, I talked some family members into combining my bday and Christmas presents to get me a new system. It will be ecs k7s5a with 512mb pc133 (for now) my old 40 gig 7200 HD, nice case w/400 watt psu, XP1600+... but the budget doesn't allow for a new video card. I have been using a TNT2M64 in my old P2-450 system. Will this be OK to run for a few months, or should I have them buy me a cheap card? There's like $35 left before I hit the limit of how much they will spend... would like a GF2 or lower end GF3 be worth the buy (and can I even find one at that price?) Or would my current card do just as good for the time being? I do plan on saving up and getting a very nice card later, so I do want to skimp for now.
