You'll thank me when the light turns green!!!

Seriously, the thing is, they only offer so many cards. There's the winpy 128MB cards that no one should touch, then there's an ATI 1300 256MB card, which is spec'ed less than the ATI 1650 card I've had for 6 months so I can't recommend, then there's the Big Whopper DUAL ATI x1950 Crossfire card setup with both cards linked to each other (truly, a "Cammer" setup) at, like, $400/$500 EACH......so that Nvidia 7950GT at $220 looks like the sweet spot for sure!

Plus.....it says "GT" on it!!!!!! You know it's just.....RIGHT......

Ascout, I had Cyber Power build mine - you can get anything and everything and it is great!

AMD 4000+
ASUS A8N-SLI DELUXE
(2) 6600GT (AT THE TIME THEY WERE SOMETHING lol)
2 GIGS RAM

UNLESS YOU NEED A MONITOR AND ALL THAT - BUT CHECK TECHBARGAINS FOR MONITORS (REGULARLY)

this is what I started from and I spent about $1200 a couple years ago...
