  1. Hi,
    I want a good video card for my PC. I don´t have AGP o PCI-E slots. I have $130 american dollars. Here are my system specs:

    Intel Celeron 2.6 GHZ
    256Mb DDR266 RAM
    Intel Desktop Board with Intel 845GV chipset
    40Gb 7200 RPM ATA 100 hard drive
    AC´97 Audio
    Intel 82845G integrated video card with 64MB

    I want a very good video card in PCI that leaves the integrated graphics in the dust... I am between a Radeon 9250 PCI 256MB and Nvidia Geforce 5500 PCI 256Mb. I am also open for suggestions. Thanks.

    The 5500 is the better card. Check Ebay for a 5700 though.
