My computer is mostly just a DAW so I shouldn't need much. My main concern is the audio programs I use such as Sonar, and Sound Forge. I don't want the video card to be a bottleneck in displaying waveforms etc. I'm debating between the following two cards. The main difference I think is the 64Bit vs 128Bit. Will that matter much? Your opinions are much appreciated.
1) GIGABYTE ATI RADEON 9550 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 64-Bit, TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "GV-R955128T" -RETAIL
2) GIGABYTE ATI RADEON 9250 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 128-Bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "GV-R925128D" -RETAIL
Alot of the time cheap AGP cards like the GF2MX are cheap in AGP format than PCI. Of course a really old 2mb PCI card would be cheaper than that and do the basics, I'd just prefer the quality of something GF2MX or R7000 level.
