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

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

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.
