Graphics Cards

  pjt 15:35 19 Aug 2005

Given that I don`t play computer games but do a fair amount of photography and reference work
which would be the better card:
ATI Radeon 9800 128MB or - the NVIDIA GeForce 6600 256MB

Windows XP SP2
Athlon 64 3200
19" LCD Monitor

Thank you for your help.

I'd go for the cheaper one - either will be more than adequate as far as I can tell.

The computer will be used a lot of email, research reading, editing photos and playing videos and DVDs
I am told that the 9800 and the 6600 are overkill for my needs.
Would I be better with a NVIDIA MX 4000 or a RADEON 9250 or 9200 or NVIDIA NX 6200, save £100 and get a better monitor.
