Maybe some of you video cards experts can help me here. I'm upgrading my monitor to a Dell lcd 19inch and I want to upgrade my graphics cards.

I use my PC for my business bookkeeping and for watching movies, no games. I want something that will work good with movies, something in the $40 - $80 price range. I need AGP 8x and nvidia and DVI output.

Can you give me some suggestions?


Thanks

In that price range and with it being an nvidia the best your going to get would be a 6200. Its not a fast card of course none will be for $80 but It will play movies just fine.

Your not going to find a great card in that price range from nvidia but if you want quite abit better video card still under your $80 budget look at the ati 9800pro. The 9800pro has 128MB ram but its still faster than the nvidia 6200 with 256mb ram. The 9800pro is $79.99

Id try to get the 9800pro or either spend alittle bit more on a video card.
