    counter strike is not that much of a resource hog when it comes to Vid performance. A 4200 128mb should be fine for that game

    My GF 4 MX 440 runs it at a constant 70+fps all the time. My card is very bad, but CS doesn't even challenge my card

    would certainly recommend a Ti over an MX card... the Tis are dx8 cards... MX's are dx7...

    you don't want to purchasing a card that is 2 gens old if you can help it...

    Go with a 9700 or 9800 Pro for now and the future.

    You didn't mention how much you were willing to spend. The price range for video cards runs from $50-500.

    My MSI Ti4200 128mb 8X AGP does dual moniters and came with the adapter dvi/crt to allow for 2 crt moniters , and I love my Ti4200 I highly recommend it. For the price its a killer card.

    the ti4200 128mb i mentioned supports dualview. for just under $100, it's a great value. but if you want to spend more, look at a Geforce FX 5700ultra or ATI 9600pro or above.
