Unless you're playing more than AOE, a better card won't really make a difference. You could get a much more powerful card like a 5850 for $300, or a 5770 which is somewhat more powerful for $160, but you probably wouldn't notice the difference aside from gaming. BTW, what "heavy duty applications"?
yup thats what i thought... thanks for the quick respose,
actually the whole idea was, i was giving my old machine to my dad, the q6600 with a gigabyte mobo, but the mobo needs a graphics card for the display, am gonna go for a cheap entry level card that should be good enough to run a display.
Any suggestions now that am not upgrading. I had an extra agp card lying around but gigabyte has no slot.
