Hey all!! I have a Compaq Presario SR1830NX. The only important thing (right now) is the fact that it has 1 PCI-E slot. Currently, I have an aging Radeon X1900GT from Crucial Technologies. I was hoping to get a newer, faster card. Chances are that it will have to be ATI because this mobo has an ATI chipset. I'm asking for a good card that is still cheap, a "best bang for your buck" kind of deal. I can usually do this with nVidia cards, but not so well with ATI cards.

Thanks in advance!!

I was trying to go for a fast and cheap one, but also one that would give me ample room to upgrade later on. So, I can either get a new mobo and go Crossfire, or go Windows Vista and DX10......or both!
