I'm a little lost on the issue of video cards... I was considering going with either of these two:
EVGA 256-P2-N624-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 KO Video Card - Retail
PNY VCG85512GXPB GeForce 8500GT 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
Without a video card, I'm spending $499 and $30 in shipping for a videocard-less total of $530.
But I'm not really sure what to do. I'd much appreciate input into this category. I would prefer to stay with nVidia, though that's negotiable. Also... Do I need a cable pack for the internal connections, or is everything supplied with what I've bought?
I'm a novice at this, and would humbly take any advice, or corrections to my parts list from the experienced builders. I'm also debating whether to go with Vista, or stick to XP... My parts list is flexible, so any changes for the better would be welcome. Thanks in advance!
