  1. okay i want to buy a new viedo card because mine is a load of ****. Ihave no idea what kind i want to get either, so i need help getting a video card that can give me an average of 90-120fps in counter-strike: source. With my very ****y ATI radeon xpress 200 series graphic card, i can only get 10-15fps, 20 if i'm lucky. Here is my system:

    System:

    Opperating System: Microsoft Windows XP professional (5.1, build 2600)
    System Manufacture: PowerSpec
    System Model: ps7121
    BIOS: Deafault System BIOS
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
    Memory: 960MB RAM
    Page file: 559MB used, 1755MB avablible
    DirectX version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

    Display:

    Name: ATI radeon xpress 200 series
    Manufacture: ATI Technologies Inc.
    Chip Type: ATI radeon xpress 200 series (0xA61)
    DAC Type: Internal DAC(400MHz)
    Approx. Total Memory: 256.0MB
    Current Display Mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit) (75Hz)
    Monitor: Plug and Play Monitor

    Motherboard: American Megatrends Inc. 080012 (i think, if it is not formilar, please say somthing)

    i want a new video card that can give me frag and good graphics for counter-strike: source. i am looking at a GeForce 7900 or a Radeon X300 SE (yes it may not be good but i have one on my other cpu and it runs source great). if you could tell me which i can use with my specs, both one or the other neither, if neither could you tell me one that could run source well (at least 30-70fps)
