Google is your best friend for finding reviews. Your not really gone find a bad video card. You get what you pay for. If you spend $40 on a card it will work fine, but its not gonna be playing any 3D games well, if at all. Which cards are you looking at?

this is a good place for reviews. while youre looking just put your choices here and let everyone help you choose which is better. there a good chance someone here will have one youre loking at also so you can get a firsthand review.

good point, we have members here with systems that rock and some that dont, but are just fine for those using them.
