    Hello. i am upgrading my mobo and am going to PCI express video card. my old card was ATI AIW 9800pro 128MB. i am torn between x1600pro and 7600GS. my bugdet is <175$ (canadian). I'd like to go 512MB this time around.

    i am NOT a gamer. i must have tv out. my use is mostly multimedia and some web/graphical design and some video editing. i have my own website so i design it myself. i am always using dreamweaver/fireworks and watching movies.

    here is what i was considering:

    7600GS - 512MB 174$
    http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=009934&cid=999.243

    x1600pro - 512MB 142$
    http://www.extreme-pc.ca/showproduct.asp?productid=369328&menu1id=12&menu2id=99&menu3id=39

    x1600pro - 512MB 134$
    http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=009935&cid=999.243

    n6600 - 512MB 140$
    http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=010356&cid=999.243

    incidentally my mobo is socket 939 asus A8N-SLI deluxe, AMD dual core x2 4400+ processor, and 4GB ocz DDR400 PC3200 RAM.

    any suggestions would be appreciated.

    If your not a gamer then get the lowest priced one with it options you want! I'm shore you don't need to spend that much for the things you say you need it for, A 50-100$ video would do you just as good
