    I bought my self some "new" gear last summer.
    Tought it was a cheap deal and im fairly happy with it.

    So I got me now:
    AMD 2600+ , Epox 8RDA+ , 1GB RAM

    But the real bottleneck is the graphic card,
    so im about to start looking for a good card which is 8+AGP,
    maybe with TV out and muchos bells and whistles.

    Any suggestions?

    I dont mind if its ATI or nVidia, but it has to kick some butt.

    Well, I might get to sell one of my guitars tomorrow.
    If so, the price is pretty much irrelevant, hehe...

    I started lookin reviews.

    As you see, im not going to wimp out this time.

    Im planning to get me a big-ass-monitor later too,
    so thing would be sort of a TV-game-console-PC setup,
    or thats what im dreaming about.

    Moneywise, I guess 500$ is pretty much the roof.

    With that kind of money do you need to ask for advice?

    Go to the store and ask for the prettiest, shiniest card on the marked (use those exact adjectives)

    Well, I thought to ask here anyways.

    I was expecting some arm-wrestling about Ati vs. nVidia,
    then I could have picked up the info and move along from there.

    Thanks, I'll go check out reviews and such.
    Whats the ATI at around the same specs? x800 "someting" ?

    Just so I could compare.
