Any suggestions on vid cards for someone who doesn't play many games, but who does view video clips and Japanimation. Preferably low cost.

Well, we could use some system specs such as type of comp., amount of ram, processor speed etc. And how much you are willing to spend.

I think its a PCI slot...I had planned on installing a mobo, but I don't have enough to purchase a OS also for the new install.

You dont need a new OS for a new mobo just a reinstallation of the old one. So as long as you allready have a liscence you are fine, if you dont have a disk MS can send you one.

Something like the PCI FX5500 will be the best you can get if youve got pci but if you only watch vids then its more than sufficient.

If I am thinking about getting a mobo, should I hold off and purchase a APG or PCI-E when I get the new mobo? Also, any recommendations on a diferent mobo. I am thinking about a AMD chip set 754 or 939

Get pci express its better, faster and newer technology than agp.

If you get a new pc now, remember to get Pci express only!

Get a socket 939 not socket 754 :tazz:
