yes, that's higher performance ram if it really is 256 bit memory.

thanks for the feedback guys, i decided to go with the eVga because I don't think that the BFG really has 256bit memeory becasue its 3d fusion by BFG which is their value brand.

Final question when I install it do I just put it in the PCI slot then set my Bios to PCi then install the drivers for it?

first you need to disable any onboard video card.
if you do something wrong, take out the battery to reset the BIOS

yes, before you put it in you need to uninstall your current videocard drivers. Than disable onboard PCI video in your BIOS.

I would say the Nvidia GeForce 6200 its a pretty decent video card and it should run fine on that
