Default What is a good video card for a ASUS P4P800 Deluxe with a 2.8 GHz Prescott P4?

I've got a lot of help from this board and thought I could use some more. I need to know what a good quality video card is, and I know I will have to pay some money for it. I need one that can handle video editing at a reasonable price.

Thanks guys!

depends.... 500 watt u will only need if u liek have water cooling and stuff. But a 400 watt is better for what u need it for. A good quality video card is a ATI Readon 9800 pro. But i mean for u sicne i saw ur other post that said, im using it for video edting. You should get a ATI readon 9700 pro.

icute psu's aren't too crummy, they're fairly reliable... of the cheap psu's anyway and maybe get the 9600xt.. that would really do you fine (and last you for quite a while) no point in spending cash on a card that you're not going to use to its full extent..
