Im looking to buy a new PCI-E video card for a freind. She is not into any games and mainly uses programs like photoshop and other photo programs. Im looking to stay within a price range of $150-$180. The last time i bought a video card AGP was top of the line so im a little confused about what is good now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Take a look at the ATI X1600 series. It's considered mid-range for gaming, but would be great for those types of apps.

You ppl are too into gaming!

What ur looking for is not a Mid-end card, but a Low-end.
You can get a card to run whatever programs she likes for under 75$, ie. the Geforce 7300 series, or even the FX5200.. wich u can find for free.. i sometimes find them on the street or in dumpsters.. once i found a 6200 in a gutter and a 5500 on the bottom of my shoe.. but seriously, get the cheapest oldest card available. I have an X1900XT and a 5200 and photoshop runs the same on both.. pretty much.

Oh and wtf do u mean "not into games"? Women.. :roll:
