Hmm, I'd personally look for a 9600XT or 9800 Pro, preferably the later

Solo ATI navidia is no Intel AMD. Nividia is crap pure and simple.Some not well informed person comes here every so often and remeber's those blazing DX 8 cheat bench's.

If your recommanding Navidia your screwing this guy over and im not gonna let you.

I recomand a 9800 pro. No game currently needs 256 memory by the time it does they'll be another batch of card's.

It all comes down to personal preference. Nuff said.
NO, its NOT ll personal preference. Unix systems ar emore reliable, XP works, AMD is cheaper(currency and quality) execpt for the 64 bit, Intel is generally better quality, etc

Things work better than other things lol
Some things dont work very well at all.

Modern Windows actually works
AMD CPU's dont overheat
New macs dont freeze
Intel CPU's work

nvmnd getting off subject but nowadays everything seems to work unless u screw it up, but things DO work better than other, expicially when compared in the ratio off QUALITY TO PRICE
for that ratio...

nvidia beats ATI (ATI is better quality)
AMD beats INTEL (INTEL is mmmmaybe metter quality)(for 32 bits)

Macs beat PC's (PC's are slower and more pricy)
and etc just my oppinion so plz dont kill me lol

Poem. "MAC",
a mac is like the warm summer sun shining apon thee in the morning dew,
a mac is like the breeze on your face while you golf in iceland,
a mac is like the first bite in your icecream cone on a hot summers day.
a mac is like a cup of hot chocolate after a cold day outside in the winter (for all u nothern people, myself included),
a mac is like a fresh donut from dunkin donuts,
BUT a mac wasnt like the first time you kissed a girl in 4th grade, it wasnt like the time you stole somthing from a store and got away with it, it wasnt like the time you got drunk in ur parents house while they were away, its not like every night you spend in bed with your spouce.
that my friend, that is like a 9800 pro.
