    With Core 2 Duo, I'd say any current $150 card. Just make sure your PSU will be strong enough to power it (at least 400W). Anything less than 400W, and you should probably stick with $100 or less cards.

    PSU a Silverstone 500w unit. Thanks for reply clifford.
    So you reckon there all that close I should stick to a certain price range? Interesting.
    Is that $150US or AUD?
    Could I trouble you for a few recommendations? Appreciate your help.
    Regards Adam
