Opinions on these two graphics cards

Preparing to buy a new system -- no gaming involved -- will use my existing Dell 1905FP monitor on the new system. Which of these two cards would you recommend:

256 mb nVidia GeForce 7900GS

vs

256 mb ATI Radeon X600 SE

TIA

  1. well if theres no gaming involved id say go for whichever one is cheaper lol
  2. agreed. get the cheapest one. i'm assuming u want a 256MB card so u can run Aero? if so, find a lower end 256MB card. like a GeForce 6600 256MB or a x1300

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102001 <-------- here's a cheap noiseless solution. has D-Sub and DVI out. great card for non-gaming, but has the ability to do Aero easily.
  3. Why do you want a gaming-grade video card if you are not going to play any games?

    I know it releaves stress on the CPU, but there is no need for that much of a high end card if you are not going to be gaming.
