    What do you guys think about this video card?

    Looking for something decent on a strapped budget. I don't do a lot of gaming, would just like the ability to play some newer games. Sys is a P4 2.8 Ghz with 512 MB of RAM. Next purchase after video card will be another 512 or 1 GB of ram.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Nothing under $120 is "decent" if you plan on gaming. Best deal right now is a 6600GT card at about $120.

    A 2.8 gig P4 w/512 RAM is adequate for gaming. More ram will do little to improve video performance. You need to put the money in the Vid card.

    What video are you running now? Intel MB built in?
