Hey,

Looking for any ideas on the better video cards under $60. I know most of the the vid cards at this price are outdated, but you wouldn't believe how outdated my present card is.

That is the site I go to for parts and pricing and I have found a number of cards that fit my price range. I guess I am trying to get people's opinion about which card would be most compatible for that price. Since agp is supposed to be faster, I'll stick with that even though I do have open pci slots. I'm not sure what the speed issue you are refering to except for maybe 2x or 4x agp. If that's the case, is there much of a difference between 2x and 4x besides price?

Thanks for everyone's input. I was also looking at the Radeon 9200. I guess the thing I wonder about now is the chipset. ATI, NVIDIA etc. Which is better and which is more compatible? I do see some games that are compatible with say NVDIA, but not ATI. I know that is rare, but it's still out there.

Sorry for being so anal, but all my previous vid cards always seem to have too many restrictions on the games I play. I love the EA Sports games and a few driving games. I guess I'll go to the manufactures websites and find out what vid cards and chipsets they support.

Any other opnions are still welcome.

Thanks.

The card coolermaster posted is a nice card also. Looks nicer than the one I posted.
It is DX 8.1 though. That is the only thing that would bother me. It is getting good reviews though. The one I posted is getting nothing.:)
