Graphics Cards Help please

  5HAD0W 12:05 24 Aug 2006

Hi, I am in the market for a new PC with a budget of around £600. I would like dual-core and will mainly be using it for office-type work and some gaming, though nothing too exreme! I have found a few contenders, but I wanted to ask about the Graphics Processors, which are:

512MB nVidia Geforce 7300GS
256MB nVidia Geforce 6200LE.

I was wondering could anyone tell me about the performance of these cards in general and compared to each other. Also how would they cmopare to a higher-spec card, such as the 7600GT or GS, bearing in mind I don't need brilliant gaming facilities, just decent frame rates and graphics!

Many thanks in advance for any help!

i think your better off with a little more money.

512 mb is much better but if your going to be frequently using games it be best for 1GB to come into thoughts.

but as i was saying you will need more money for a 1gb.

how many games are you going to be palying on it?

Not many games, although I haven't really picked any in particular. The likes of Half-Life, Command and Conquer and perhaps Battlefield 2, although that may be pushing it slightly. Although I'm not dreadfully worried about top performance, mainly just hitting decent and comfortably playable frame rates.

Many thanks again!
