Just to add my opinion, I prefer ATI to NVIDIA... I highly suggest ATI. NVIDIA isn't bad either, but I don't care for them as much.

Yes, but I suggest ATi. ATi is the best in most people's opinion, including mine. I also use ATi. You don't really need a 512MB video card, thats extremly powerful. It could also end up being more then $200, which I suspect. I'd go with a 256MB video card. 128MB video card minimum, but probably won't run all settings to their highest. A 256MB, and a 512MB+ will, but they're more expensive.

You have PCIE, becuase the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE, is a PCIE graphics card.

For more information on your card, visit this webpage:
