Hi Guy. I run a computer support company and build a lot of systems. I build all my own desktops. Also, I am a high-end gamer. You need to compare specs and prices. One of my go-too places is the tomshardware review site. Just Google it. That site does a super job of hardware reviews and comparisons. Check out the Charts area. You will get unbiased info tht you need. I'm not sure what your budget is, but a killer value for the dollar line of cards right now (June 09) is the ATI 4850 line of cards from various companies. I own two of them.
