ATI AIW RADEON 9000 PRO vs. ATI AIW RADEON 9600 Video Card
There are obvious differences between the two cards, but I'm trying to decide what I really need. I'm not THAT much of a gamer but I've spent years with a mediocre system that always ran games slow, so I would like to play basic cool games without a problem. My biggest concern with the video card is that I can watch high quality movies, DVD's, DVD-rips, DivX...etc. without a problem of slowness. I also like to watch tv-shows, play around with digital pics...
The question is, do I need to spend the 171 on the 128 mb video card? Or will 64 mb be enough.
