Trying to find a video card that will do at least Oblivion, that also has DVI-D output. Everycard I have found only does DVI-I. Desktop PC.

Any input is appreciated.

AGP 8x btw.

I currently have a 256mb 9250 ATI, but its too crappy. But it does have DVI-D.

What's your choice today?

DVI-I accepts both DVI-A (analog) and DVI-D (digital).

thanks. Anyone recomend a card that has DVI-I output that will do good for under $200? I mostly just want to play Oblivion on my new WD-65731 Mitsubishi TV.

for $50 more a 7900GT will do ya good- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130033

i see a "recertified" 7800GT on newegg for $194 if u can't spare the change

Good suggestion Scotty, but unfortunately it looks like prelude is part of the shat upon AGP user group, so that card won't work.

The best card currently available for AGP is the nvidia 7800GS, but it's extremely overpriced for what you get. Unfortunately the next best thing is an ATI X850XT PE, if you can find one. An alternative is the X800XT:

I've also been looking around for a new AGP card, and there just isn't much available these days...

EDIT: Looks like you can get a recertified 7800GS for around $200. I'm not sure what kind of warranty you get on the recerts, but it's an option
