    Hi all,

    I have a Geforce 7300 GS right now. I am looking to upgrade my video card and holy moley!!! there are sooo many cards out there. I have an Intel Pentium 3.0 and 2gb ram and am looking to upgrade my video card.

    I am looking to upgrade to a video card with 1GB memory. I think that the games that I play (Titan Quest and Civ IV) push my card the most. I don't do movies or anything like that on my machine...at least not yet...lol

    My price range is $150ish, this appears to be able to get me a decent video card.

    I looked at 2GB video cards, and holy moly.... they are really expensive. Why are these cards soo expensive? Memory is relatively cheap. So, why are the 2GB cards, $500 +? The jump from 512MB to 1GB is $40 to $75ish. Seems to me that the upgrade to 2GB should be in the $300 range, not $500+.

    Thank you for a response on either part of my email!

    Best regards,

    Danimal
