I am looking to put a couple of new components in my PC. I have decided on an Athlon 800, Asus A7V and 128 SDRAM. Next I have to choose a video card. I am of course on a budget so the new ATI's are out of the question. I won't lie... I am upgrading to take advantage of some of the newer games out. What card should I be looking at? I have tried to read the reviews on various sites but they seem vague at best.

Thanks

P.S. Sorry for the double post in TV\Video cards.. My bad :o )

Go for the Radeon 32MB card. Has super speed, much better picture quality then geforce could ever be. Radeon cheaper then the geforce 2 GTS cards and are just as fast.

32MB of powerful double data rate (DDR) memory, ATI Charisma Engine, and Pixel Tapestry technologies $ 149
-Found at www.pricewatch.com

so check'em out... you can get the geforce2 MX card for the same price. I recommend www.egghead.com as your vendor. Free shipping right now.

hmm... don't know if I'd quite agree with that... I'm buying a Radeon now, but only because I want the All-in-one version and want to use TV etc.
If I wanted just to play games, I'd probably go for Geforce2... but that's just personal opinion... you're not likely to go wrong either way -- raw speed of Geforce2 at lower resolutions/colours, or somewhat better subjective quality of Radeon and speed and higher resolutions/colours...

ya, i have that card. It's really nice! :) 

Trust me! the picture quality is awsome. And it is really fast. can you say quake2 at like 1124x800 or some crazy resolution and it ran flawlessly! must i mention i also had FSAA enabled! Ran perfect and it looked so awsome!

I like my Asus V7700 GF2 personally. It has video in/out too all for under $222.
