which new graphics card?

  jezzabevan 23:26 05 Jan 2007

Currently have an Nvidia Geforce FX5200 which tho a few years old is fine for my needs - very little gaming - BUT just about to buy a new TFT monitor (prob a Samsung SM225BW - any comments anyone?) and would like to make use of the DVI input facility. Also nice to have a TV facilty too. Anyone got any recommendations? - needs to be a PCI card and does not need to be the latest hottest fastest model - ie well under £100 I hope.

thanks for link to Toms hardware reviews Arthur. Terryf - bit thick over here, how do I find out what type of PCI I have?

Just installed sisooft sandra - seems I have an AGP slot for my graphics card after all!

Any of those will do for what you want, so long as you don't expect to play the latest games in all their glory.

If you really arn't bothered about gaming, then you may as well get the last as it is the cheapest

Hope this helps.
