Where would be the best (cheapest) place to get a good video card. Only know enough to be dangerous when it comes to computers. Maybe a little more but dont know anything about upgrading. Any help would be appreciated. Here are my specs. thanks Jeff

Check Fry's if you have one near you.

I don't know what you want to spend, your system is close to mine and I'm using a ATi Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb and am very pleased with it.
The price has come down quite a bit since I bought it.
1st one $1.69.

I never did business with either so your on your own.

A place that sells things for PCs with the word "Fry" in it seems a bit ominous to me Smile
