    If you are going to put a robust video card in, it is in your best interest to upgrade your poswer supply too. DON'T SKIMP ON POWER SUPPLIES! A mistake I will never make again.

    I was in a similar situation.... add a CDR here, a hard drive there, a better video card and poof..... overloaded PS and lost everything. Please learn from my mistakes..... that's my little input.

    Also consider the nVidia 6200 or 6200GT. They should have more features and power than the others and come in at a comparable price to the 5700 LE and 5700. (They are soon to be released in AGP flavor)
