Graphics card for vista

  restless 12:19 30 Jun 2007

After running the vista upgrade advisor my pc will need a new graphics card as it wont support the Windows Aero.I have a radeon 9200 at present which is sufficent for me.Can you reccommend a suitable card that is not to costly to use with vista home premium.

Mine is running perfectly on an NVidia GeForce 7300GS, which is very cheap. Not good enough for serious games but ok for Flight Sim etc.

Depending on your motherboard, and what it will support: ie: do you have pcie? (pci express) support? There a quite a few cards that will run the windows vista aero interface without breaking your bank balance. You can get a few ideas from here click here or here click here

Sorry should have said that it has to be agp.Im not a gamer so a low end card would be fine.

Same links apply for agp, should be very cheap now, as most people have gone down the SLI PCIE route, I think you should be able to get hold of a card for about £50.00...look for 256mb of graphics memory if you can.

I have the PCI-e version of this card in my new PC running Vista Home Premium and Windows Aero click here

Thats a very good deal, restless, you would be hard pressed to beat it.

I ended up going for the GeForce 7600 GS.Very pleased with it!
