Default Graphics Card

I'm looking at buying a new processor and video card. I'm pretty much settled on an Athlon 3500 but I'm not quite sure what to do with the video card. I'm looking at the nvidia 7600 though I don't know if it would be a good buy at its price of around 170. Does anyone have any suggestions?

mhm the 7600 is a solid VGA for the price

but you could get much better

Willing to spend 309?

Athlon 3500 would be a good choice for a processor. Just make sure it's 64-bit.

You're correct.

Even Sempron's only go up to 3200.
