    Point me to a good Graphics card

    I need some help find a good graphincs card under $230. It needs to be either PCI or PCIe I'd like 512mb but will go 256 if it is a good card, SLI would be key as well. My shitty monitor also only uses VGA so Dual DVI will not work.

    I just purchased a GeForce 6200 PCI 256 and it is absolute garbage. I just finsihed building my first computer and was kind of chincy on the card and only blew $100 on it. Thanks in advance :bigthumb:

    I think you mean it needs to be PCIE.
    But before that, what motherboard do you have now? Let's make sure it even has a PCIE slot.

    Any decent video card today is going to have dual DVI. That's not a problem because it'll come with DVI -> VGA adapters. Even if it doesn't include them, you can buy the adapters cheap.
