So I'm currently in the process of building my first computer so I am still pretty new at all this stuff. For a while now, I've had my eye on the EVGA 8800GTS 320mb
but a friend of mine told me that I should get an ATI card instead (he said ATI works better with windows or whatever...im not too sure). He told me to look into the ATI X1950 XTX but it is a little too much price wise. I was looking into the ATI X1950 XT 256mb. One thing that I am thinking about is the EVGA is DirectX 10 and ATI is DirectX 9. I have no idea what that is so please help. Any suggestions?
My budget is around $300 but no more than $350. Like I've said in the past, I am no gamer, however I still want to have the ability to play games.
