A) Dont get the physx card. That thing is a joke.

B) The video card that guy posted will work great for your application. Although for its performance, its awfully pricey. Here are some alternatives...

Nvidia:

ATI:

I realize some will laugh about the Nvidia one, as is is the exact same card, only with better heatsink art.. its 4 dollars more, and is much more atheistic. Which is very important to me, and it may be to you too, so now you have all 2 of your high performance PCI options. :P.

Thanks for the new egg suggestions guys= really cool site. I am thinking I might go with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103016

It is the Diamond version of the X1300 PCI. I'd be really happy if I could even get Battlefield 2 going or any HL2 Mods :bald:

I'll scrape together the dough for this in the upcoming weeks by subtracting money from the beer and late night mexican food funds

lol thx again for all of your inputs

Physx card actually makes games run worse because it adds new features that are more diffucult to render. Every review I've seen with games like GRAW just add more flare...and it hurts the gpu.
