I'm looking for a new, cheap VGA card. I have a ATI A-I-W 9600xt but their drivers and software are horrendus. Plus I wouldn't mind selling it to get some extra money.

I have a AGP slot on my mobo but I'm not sure if I truely need the extra umpf of AGP. So either PCI or AGP, no PCIe. I mainly just browse the web, do Photoshop and work with websites. Occasionally I'll watch a DVD. Also, the only video game I play is a 2D game called Continuum so it has to be able to support that but I won't be playing any 3D FPS's or anything like that.

I don't know if this can be the cards fault but I want to be sure it displays on my LCD nicely. I just got this thing and I'd hate to have the quality degrade much.

I'm hoping to find something under $30ish.

I did find one that seemed nice, do you think it would work for my needs?

That may be ok, but what about this one? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814121542
It is 128MB vs the 64MB you chose and the reviews are better.

The one he chose is 128MB austin...

but I agree with austin because I've never heard of Volari. Better to go with a good GPU maker like nVidia or ATI.

What about something like this? And I don't need DVI... just VGA.
