Graphics Card Advice requested

  johnsims 09:42 28 May 2004

I want to buy a new graphics card. Only 3 requirements really:
1. DVI-I and D-Sub connectors
2. Quiet - if not silent!
3. Inexpensive
I am not into the sort of stuff that reuqires anything like a top end card. My ATI rage 128 All in Wonder does everything I need, except it has no DVI-I interface and I want a DVI tft monitor. (LG1710B)

Anyone out there got any suggestions to help me cut through the maze?
thanks in advance

How much money are we talking?

Anywhere between £25 and £50 or so I guess. Certainly not interested in the latest go faster cards which have huge prices and huge fans and are as noisy as the average turboprop aircraft.

have a look at click here they all seem to have DVI outputs from £23.50

Prehaps a ATI Radeon 9200 128mb DDR most (maybe all) have DVI out 30-40 pounds

note they dont have fans...

Thanks ste_bla and Totally_braindead - esp for the speed of response. These look just the job, will have to visit the ATI site to see just what the difference is between radeon 7000 and radeon 9200. Don't expect it'll make a lot of difference to me as the PC is used mainly for office type tasks plus dtp plus simple web design work and not for games or video editing or suchlike.

Thanks again
