Any ideas of a PCI Express video card that's not too pricy, but supports a res of 1280X1024? Also, how do you get a case to match the ports on the motherboard? It appears that they are not universal. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939
MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard
pqi POWER Series 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
Either 6200 TC or X300 SE HE.
Western Digital or Seagate 160 Gb Hard drive SATA 150.
Antec case with 350 watt power supply
That adds up to 695. Since your budget is 800, then you can get a better video card if you want.

I dont know of a current graphics card that cant use that res, its mostly dependant on what the monitor will support.
You might look at the antec sonata piano your aunt will apprecitae you more for giving her a pc that wont make a racket and use all her deskspace.
Motherboards to my knowledge come with the backplate and you take out the one on the case if it doesnt fit.
Mind you if it is for office applications then you dont need a pc like that its kinda overkill, i have a laptop with an old p3 cpu and 256 o ram with 8 megs for the graphics runs every office application ive got and i got it with 2000 pro and all the office packages plus loads of other business stuff on. It runs it all fine.
