Why do you need a video card? CAD work? Movies, watching/editing? What are the rest of your system components?

Sorry, I didn't submit enough info. My components are:

Intel® Core™2 Duo Desktop Processor E6550 + Motherboard P5K ASUS .

I'm not a gamer, no CAD, just Internet (I like no traces)

Thank You again

Pick up a 7600 GS or something like that. It's a recent generation card that has relatively low power consumption, decent performance, and won't break the bank. Although....a 7300 would probably even do the trick.

Best of Luck

After learning the prices and specifications, I think that most important for a Video card for a bit tomoorow day are DDR3, DirectX 10, anf of course price.

I would decline next cards:

1. Radeon HD 2400XT Sonic 69$

2. GeForce® 8500GT Sonic 93$

3. Radeon HD 2600PRO Sonic 99$

Please advice is it correct???

Any of those would be fine for a "non" gamer card. Just a shame that you have a good CPU and Mobo and don't take advantage of it, but it's not mine. If you want Dx10 card, so you can use a 64bit Vista (assuming you would want to), than any of those that you mention would work for that. And if you want to eventually want to play a game later, than you can come back and ask more ?'s if you like. Enjoy your system!

No need for dx10 if you dont game.Nvidia 6 series on up and equivalent Ati cards would do.I would say Nvidia 8500 or Ati 2400 would be fine for what you want to do.

Since all you do is surf the internet, then you really don't need anything powerful. You can easily get by with an ATI X1550 for $29 + $5 shipping

It does not have a fan so that means it is silent. However, it does not have a VGA port (D-Sub) so you'll need a DVI to VGA adapter if your monitor doesn't have a DVI port.

Alternatively, you can go with the GeForce 7300LE for only a little more:

It is also passively cooled as well.

Surfing the net requires no more than a Tesco built rig. Pc world can get u an online ready Pc for far less than buying low end pieces. I agree with previous posters about your mobo + processor. Who told you to buy them for just surfing the net? But its your rig, I know its an english site but

shows you how little you can spend on a card.
For less than £20 ($40) you can get a XFX GeForce 6200 PCI-E64MB - 256MB Turbocache.
about $90 could get you MSI GeForce 7300GS 256MB DDR2 PCI-E
