I want a new video card for my PC. I thought someone here might tell me which one is a good one to use. I have a Q6600 Quad processor with 2 gigs ram 1066 mghz, only have 500watt power, but can change that if I need to, and still using XP os.........anyone?

Under those, i can tell you to get an ATI 4850 or a nVidia 9800GTX, even a 8800GT/9800GT is nice on that res. And tell us a little more about your PSU if you can, since not all 500W PSU's are alike.

Search for prices of these cards: nVidia 9600GT/9600GSO and ATI 4670/3870. These cards should be enough for any 17" monitor IMO. The 9600GT and the 3870 are a little better, but close to the others. Also, i looked up your PSU and should handle any of those cards with no problems at all. Anyway, if you find a 8800GT/9800GT *really* cheap, get one of those instead. Esop!
