    I am getting a new computer built and i have a small budget for it. I just need a new computer to run some games decently. I current have a p3 550 with 192 ram and am getting an athlon 2500 with 512mb ram. What do you guys think of the video card that i just bought? If worst comes to worst, i will get a newer one in the future but for now I needed one i can afford.

    Not a bad choice, it should run most games fine. Me I would have spent the extra money for the PRO or the XT model though.

    I hope that thing came with a DVI to VGA converter or do you plan using a LCD screen with DVI outputs?

    That card is a piece of crap.
    They have a 9500 Pro refurb on there for like 129 bux.

    Get that. Unless you are too cheap. That 9600 SE is a piece tho.
