Anyone recommend a good graphics card?

I work a lot in graphic design and publishing so I need a good card graphics card for high resolution. I also use the same PC for games etc. Can anyone recommend a good graphics card? and what would be the minimum amount of memory on the card? Someone told me about the Nvidia geForce4 FX5200. Is it any good?

The Gforce FX5200 (not gf4) is the budget version of the new nVidia chipset supporting Direct X9.

It depends on how much money you wish to spend.

If you use Hi-Res alot then go for one with 128 or 256MB ram.

The FX5600 128/256MB is the mid range card and very fast for all the latest games and ones coming over the next year or two!

I wouldnt go for an FX 5200, it supports DX9 on paper only, in the real world it just aint got the grunt.
