Default Question about my video on my new comp build.. please help

ok my first build went well.. the only thing is that i didnt have enough money for a graphics card this week but im going to pick one up next week... my mobo doesnt have onboard video so i am using a very old pci vga card... when i come to this site... and i scroll down it lags and is all choppy... same if i open a graphics window on the desktop and move it around it like jumps... like when i had the asus drivers screen up and i moved it it was all choppy... is this because of this old vga board... or because i have to do something yet... please help i appreciate it

Thanks, Eric

It seems to me that once you get your new card everything will run smoothly. What card are you getting? I've heard a lot of good things about the Powercolor Radeon 9600XT (it's 128mb).

thats what i plan on getting but people have been telling me to wait untill hte new cards come out cause the price will drop...

**will the price drop enough to have to wait for it... cause i mean if its 40 bucks or under idk... **


Also how long you think i can use the 9600xt before i would have to upgrade it ???


thanks, Eric
