I think a 8800gt 512mb or 8800GTS g92 card would be a good choice. You aren't going to be able to do all ultra settings on newly released game.

Even with a computer monitor the cards are good choices.


XP Pro | Vista Home Premium | Linux Ubuntu 7.10
s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:
70K F@H member..............still waiting for the "iRACK"

Norcent will not be forgotten.
