Need help picking video card
 
Im upgrading to the p5b deluxe board which has pci express only. my current card(PNY Verto GeForce 5200) is agp only. I have around 150-200 to spend on a new card. My monitor doesnt have an s-video input so keep that in mind. There seems to be a zillion different vid cards and thats one thing i know nothing about. I watch alot of videos and movies and do some gaming. nothing too intense though. Any recomendations? THanks

You should get a eVGA 7600gt. They are $146 at ZipZoomFly.

It should come with an Adapter. My 1950XTX did.

Both the 7600gt, and the 7900gs are very good cards.

Personally i think the extra $50 would be worth it to get the 7900gs, but its up to you.
