Currently I have the Nvidia GeForce 6600GT but I'm not impressed. I mean, it does everything I want except there seems to be some overscan issue with the current drivers. Anything I record and watch on the TV is stretched. For some reason they've yet to fix it even with so many people complaining on their message boards.

So...do I wait a few more months and see if they fix it?
or....does anyone have any other workarounds?

Is there an ATI board you'd recommend?
-has to be AGP
-hopefully less than $100 (I'm picky about the way things look but also a week to week kinda guy)
-also has to work with BioShock. gonna start playing that soon (also the reason I bought this video card)

Wow, less than $100 bucks, play bioshock.

I still use AGP, had to buy a 7950GT AGP because Bioshock demo had a very very difficult time with my X800XL ATI

I think maybe the X1900 series might do for you.

They are like newegg, the more hits a particular product gets, the website automatically increases the price.

Best is to get your credit card ready and only access it when you want to buy.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
