and what about ATI Graphic Cards?
why you choose Nvidia?

The system I wrote up above should fit your budget once you take out that HD and PSU. If you're interested, I'd be happy to build it for you.

Again, Nvidia to me is more of a preference, but that one card it great because it runs almost everything flawlessly, it's comparatively not that expensive, and it has a special heatsink that lets it run at a lower temp.

Why Nvidia Geforce and not ATI Graphic Card?
