    new graphics card on the horizon, upgrading my computer.

    i currently have a voodoo 3 2000 pci card.

    the rest of the system will be an athlon 2500, barton core (333)
    with 512mb pc2700 crucial ram. 80gb hdd.
    nforce 2 based board.

    what card would be better for price, im not wanting to spend alot so.

    a few i have looked at are

    Gainward Fx 5200 Powerpack Pro 660 64MB DDR 8x AGP Video-Out Retail Box (£45)
    GeForce4 PowerPack Pro/600 8X AGP MX440 Chipset, 64MB DDR, Video-Out Retail Box(£37)
    Hightech ATI Radeon 9200SE 128MB TV-Out DVI Retail Box(£39)


    im not to sure how each of them compare to each other, so can any give me ideas of which will be best, or other recomendations.

    dotn do alot of intensive gaming, but do do a bit,

    Only if the game you playing uses all that memory.

    Also Livy, is the 9200SE you pointed out DDR? I know the geforce&#39;s are, not sure about the 9200SE
