Hi everyone I've just joined the forum and have pretty much the same question as all before me!
This is the system that I am building, and have most parts allready but am confused about the graphics card.
Based around Mike's Hardware "Best Value System"
Motherboard Asus A7N8X Deluxe v.2
Processor AMD Athlon XP 2800+
HS&Fan Cooler Master Aero7 Lite (3200+)
Memory 2x512Mb Crucial PC3200 DDR SDRAM
Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar JD 120Gb (8Mb, SATA)
Floppy Drive Alps 1.44Mb
DVD+- NEC ND2500A Dual Format 8X
Graphics Card Tyan Radeon 9600 Pro, 128Mb
Sound Card nVidia APU (6ch, on board)
Speakers Creative Inspire 5300 OEM
From what I have read this looks like a 3D gamers card and I dont play them, but I do want to edit video, at present I have just added a Firewire card to my existing setup but the new MB has Firewire on board.
So, as I would rather spend less than £100, better £60-70, what can I get for this new system? and from what I have been reading prefer ATI.
Thanks in advance for all help regards Lorne.
