Have a look here, there is some good info about what Card may suit your system, there are things to consider, one would be the cards on board memory cache it doesn't always work that the most is the best a 125meg card in a lot of cases will work better than a 250 meg, the system setup is important to get the balance of PSU, processor, memory, right so you can optomise your card,good luck...

thx thats agreat help just what i was looking for

You don't want a card with a measly 128MB VRAM, regardless of it's chipset.

Okay, so the ATI option has failed for whatever reason this ASUS problem sounds a bit fishy to me, lol). So, nVidia, AGP?

That's the best one currently available.
