I am getting into web design , and a LITTLE gaming, gaming not a priority

what is the best video card for a desktop.

i have the i7 processor and i am looking to spend 150-250 but will spend what is necessary if it matters.

prefer newegg.com to buy.

this is my wishlist so far/build so far.

*wish list is empty

your not going to need spend that much money on a video card for cs4, you could spend under $100 if its just for cs4.

It also helps to know what resolution and size your monitor is but ill make a suggestion anyway.

Assuming you would like to spend as little as possible....

SAPPHIRE 100255HDMI Radeon HD 4670 512MB

EVGA 512-P3-N963-TR GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB

If you REALLY want to spend that much, get the HIS 4870 1 GB Ice Q Turbo or something like that.

Because Creative Suite 4 can use GPUs to do some of the heavy lifting on the graphics, I'd suggest something in the neighborhood of a 4770 or even a 4850. The speed-up in processing and display rendering is VERY noticeable in Photoshop.

also should mention that both cards that i suggested above will be able to give you solid mid-level gaming.

Does a video card really speed up PS? I have a cd from a friend lying around and didn't get the time to install it, is it really noticeable?
