What is your budget? We need to know approximately what range you are in or we can't help. It's no help listing $600 cards, like the top of the line X850XTpe, if your budget is $150, or no help saying the GF6600GT is the best sub $200 card now if you desire a $300+ high end card.

Have you read <A HREF="http://graphics.tomshardware.com/graphic/20041222/index..." target="_new">THG VGA Charts V</A> to see many(not all) of the available PCI-e cards?

Are you building it right away, or gathering parts over time? I ask this, because the best deal now isn't likely to be the best deal months from now. High end PCI-e cards are high priced, and the new recently released mid-high end cards aren't yet available at their retial/list/announced price. Look for the X800 and X800XL to be great choices once availability increases and prices drop to their $200 & $300 anounced prices.

so far what I have just learn is that with the Nforce4 board that only Graphic card I can u is an Nivida card I think there an 6000,6600, and a 6000 ultra so I guess my real question is. wright now im sorta leaning to the 6600 board but yet im still not sure which 1's are better the only thing I do know is that the more expensive 1's are faster but yet should I spend the extra 200$ on an 6000 Ultra. I was hoping to go with AtI but it looks like that haven't come out with a card that can support SLI just yet. My budget at this time well lets just say I don’t want to spend to much $ on a graphic card. wright now I have about 1 month instill my project is do...unless my teachers go back on strike but for now the deadline is March 29th.

i wont spend more money on an SLI mobo cause it biult in 2 the nforce4 board and yes the X800XL or X850XT are very very good but there like 400-500$. when the Nvidia cards r like 150-170$ yeah i'll ned a tv card but there only 50$ but what your saying is true. bUt by going with Nvidia i could keep my option open.
