Hello I'm looking for a good video card for my computer for around $80-$100 I use comp' for video,movies,music,i-net,little gaming. I have a ASUS-p4p800se board,with a Intel-3.4g CPU-Extreme Edition. Sparkle-400watt pwr,supply.(OCZ)>2X512 PC3200-dual ch-memory. Creative-sound blaster"live"card. running WindowsXP-media center edition-2005, through a Seagate/Cheetah-39g(SCSI)drive. Also have western digital 200gig & 80gig drives for storage. Monitor> DELL-IN1901N-wide screed,flat panel. The video card i was running-Geforce-FX5200.

The reason I'm asking for advise on a good compatible video card is my friend that helped me build this computer about 5 years ago. Was a Microsoft cert, tech and one day on his way to work in May,2007 he was killed in a automobile accident. My friend has shown me quiet a bit about computers when he was alive. But would like input before i make a purchase decision. Any advice would be great and i thank you!

Hi:Video Support :

This board comes with an AGP
(Accelerated Graphics Processor) socket, in this
socket goes the video board. This board will support
video cards that are 8x AGP compatible, but it will
also support 4x AGP video cards.
This board is designed to be used with AGP video cards
that use 1.5V and .8V it won't work with any other cards
that are 3.3V. So be very careful and remember to ask about
the video card you are about to purchase to make sure that
it is a 1.5V or .8V video card.

The following video card would work in that board:

1) Gigabyte Radeon 9200
SE

2) ATI RADEON 9200SE 128MB AGP 8X Video Card with TV-Out

Good luck..

Thank you very much for the information Greenfield, could i bother you with another few questions? How do the Video cards you suggested compare to the G-force FX-5200 i was running and can i use cards that are 256MB? Also' is my system compatible with video cards that have (DVI) connections so i don't have to use a Videum Board for hooking to a TV? "Thank you again for any information Greenfield... If you ever have a Automotive question feel free to ask' for that is my line of expertize.

umm the absolute best you can get:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

radeon HD 4670

and the 9200 SE is a low end card same with the 5200 FX

read here:

http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Video-Cards/FX-5200-vs-R...

there would be small differences between the two. and with aa and af turned on the 9200 gets it's but kicked, but with them off 9200 comes out ahead

the 4670 above is a very nice buy, but looking at your cpu, it may be bottle necking it a little

and thus:

a 4650 may be a better bet if you want to save a little.


anything blow this line means you have to upgrade the whole rig, don't buy them and try to fit it in your current computer
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


it may be a time to completely upgrade your system to pcie tho, as for the 100 dollars you are spending on agp stuff, for pcie you can buy a 5670 for 99 dollars:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and that would basically own them all in feature (DX 11 eyefinity)

or a

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

4850 that would mean a high end card in the 4000 series that would simply demolish anything in from nvidia and ati in the same price range for performance in DX 10 and DX 9
