  1. Hello. My brother needs a certain video card for his new computer.

    Here is what he needs:

    # Video/Graphics Card**:

    * nVidia GeForce 2, GeForce 4mx, or better
    * OR ATI Radeon 8500, 9250, or better

    I have no idea what to get that will work with the computer. This is the video card he has now: He is running on a Windows PC Desktop with Service pack 2.

    RADEON 7500 Series AGP (0x5157)
    Memory size: 64 MB

    I can provide more info If needed.

    This is a good card that'll do quite well for your brother's PC. Be warned that it needs a 450W power supply with a good number of amps on the +12V rail. If you can't\won't get a new PSU (Power Supply Unit), then get an FX5200 from TigerDirect.com instead.
