I have a 512MB GeForce 9600 GT (PNY), and just acquired for free a Dell lcd W3201c 32" monitor. My friend says he just bought a vid card for his gal and that he think its better than my card I'm running now.

The monitor has a vga port and a hdmi port, I'm curious if a hdmi port from a vid card would make the picture quality better or does it matter?

So my question is it? And if so by how much? 1X? 2X?

Can you guys suggest a card that is better in the price range of $50-$W100?

Also I have a friend who has a NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 1 GB model for 120....it was for his grapics he used to do, but I'm curious if this would also be good for gaming?

Thanks for all your help.

what card did your friend use? afaik the HDMI is for viewing content with high definition such as movies in HD and it can carry the audio data through the cable as well. for gaming purpose either VGA or DVI is fine. nvidia quadro is used for professional graphic task. basically the card use different drivers than geforce so the gaming performance was not optimized for this kind of card. for the price range maybe you can go for 5670 which is a bit faster than your current 9600GT. or add abit more you can get GTS250 or HD4850

9600 GT is far more better than GT 210.
GT 210 is really a poor card for gaming.

Take a look at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-radeon-hd-ge...

It's one of the better ways to view and compare video cards. Pick a card a tier or 2 or 3 above yours and then check prices.

I have seen used 9800 and 8800s for 40-50 on craigslist, pretty good value if you don't mind a used card. I picked up a 9800GT for 40, been running super nice for months now. Keep in mine your power supply wattage and connectors, to go much over a 9600GT you want over 400 watts in a quality power supply depending on yoru system.

GTS 450 is better than whole 9-series.
It competes with GTS 250.

GTS250 and GTS450 practically on par but 450 use less power. other than that 450 also have more overclocking room for more performance

buddy i think u haven't understood my meaning of saying.
I was actually appreciating GTS 450.
N GTS 450 has memory interface width of 128 bits whereas GTS 250 has memory interface width of 256 bits but GTS 250 has 128 Cuda cores whereas GTS 450 has 192.So this levels their performance.
N competes with means that both are neck to neck which also clarifies your word on par.

You have written it wrong,your RAM is DDR2.
*XFX Nvidia nforce 790i Ultra. (DDR 3 Memory Support)
*Intel DP45SG. (DDR 3 Memory Support)
*ASUS P5K-V.(DDR 2 Memory Support) (Deactivated)
Buddy u will hardly get a motherboard with DDR 2 memory support which is having more than one PCI-E (X16) slots.
So i recommend u to put your hands on DDR 3 memory support motherboard.
In the above ASUS P5K-V supports DDR 2 but it is now out of stock.
I recommend you to stay with your current setup n save money.
And with more money u should go for Core i3,Core i5 or Core i7 setup because it is advanced technology.
And still your computer is powerful enough to play any recent games.
Just upgrade your graphic card because in this way your money will not be wasted because u can fit that graphic card
on your new setup (system).
I repeat again Stay with your current setup and save money for the new and advance setup.
Best of luck.
