    okay well I just got a new Asus M3n78 Pro Mobo that has on board NVIDIA Ge Force 8300, Now on my old MoBo i had my BFG NVIDIA GeForce 6200 OC with 256mb ddr memory so i was wandering if it would be worth installing on this mobo or should i stick with onboard?

    The onboard Geforce 8300 is the better choice here, it has better specs.

    The 8300 has a better processor,but the 6200 doesn't use
    system memory unless it's a turbocache card.
    If you have plenty of system memory,might want to use
    the 8300 til you can get a better card.

    I have been looking at the ATI 4670.
    Fairly fast processor and 320 stream processors.
    Pretty good for a midrange card at around $80-$100.
    The one made by HIS has good cooling and blows the heat
    out the back of the case,but it's wide enough to cover up
    the next slot.
    HIS 4670.
