    My parents got me a dell 4500S business machine for college, its not that bad of a PC really, the only thing that hold its back from being great is the lack of an AGP slot. I dont really care that much since I'm not a hard core gamer or anything, all I really play is Day of Defeat. I'd like to get a new video card after christmas and was wondering what would be a good PCI card would be, I've seen ATI radeons i believe but I dont know that much about video cards and what not, what would you guys reccomend?

    TIA

    i know u can get a radeon 7500 for pci. 64mb, for 100 cnd

    u can also get the mx 420 in pci. 64mb too for the same price.

    i would go mx as better driver and game support

    or radeon for cad/rendering/video/multiple desktops

    This is the best one I have ever seen:
    POWERCOLOR ATI RADEON 9000 64MB DDR PCI CRT+DVI+TV
    It is available at Newegg.com for $99 US and free shipping. Sounds pretty sweet to me. There are lot of PCI cards there by the way in case you want to look around.
