Hi, I was looking into getting a new video card, but im not sure which one. I have a budget of about 100-150 Ishh.. I am a radeon fan,but those Geforce 7600 GT looked amazing.. I want to kind of circle around the specs of "ATI X1650 Pro AGP 512MB Video Card" according to my local future shop. Iv been trying to play games such as doom 3 and half life 2.. on a built in motherboad Graphics card .. I was wondering if some one could recomend a software which desplays all my stats, and according to that you guys have a better idea. Iv recentally been fooling around with my computer, to find it is an AGP slot. Now i look into Geforce and i see all this Gt,se,Gs.. So i was wondering if you guys could help me out. :whistling:

To find out more about your computer than you would ever want to know, download Everest Home Edition: Everest.

Your best bet is either going to be the 7600GT or the X1950 pro would be a much better card if you can afford it. I advise against Futureshop because their prices are quite a bit higher than internet sources such as newegg.com or tigerdirect.com. You will be looking about $125-140 for the 7800GT and about $170-185 for the X1950 pro. Depending out your power supply you may have to upgrade that as well.
