that would first depend on what type you need? but personally I would spend a little more and look for a 7600xx card... (GS, GT)

i like the 3d fuzion 7600gs, is that a decent card? i know the value lines can get pretty watered down - and sadly gpu's are not my area of expertise so thats why im asking.

i'd mainly use it for some gaming and some programming/CAD, but in reality i just want to get off my cheapo onboard x200 based graphics.

if you want to do high quality CAD work, you will need to spend some money... but for budget and decent looking AutoCAD type of design, I think the GS would work..
