Question New Graphics Card...

I currently have a Dell 4700C with crappy integrated graphics and am looking to upgrade that a little bit. I looked in the manual online, my computer has a PCI Express x16 slot. I am not really going for total hardcore gaming, more casual like RCT3 and Sims 2... How does a card like THIS look?

(For those that are too lazy to go to the link)
PNY VCG6600GXPB Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

$99 after 40 mail in rebate.. not too shaby - - that card decent? and.. it WILL fit.. correct?

Thanks a bunch!

yup that card is good, but i would go with eVGA as a brand as PNY is just iffy. make sure your psu will be able to handle it

eVGA 6800gs, if you can afford it, you'll be very happy with its power.
