Can you help me find a video card

  1. I'm looking to replace a Geforce 6200Gt turbo cache.(I know that is old) I use my computer for editing movies and gaming. I also need a card that can score higher than a 2.3 on vistas list. It seems as thought if I have a video desktop then I open another video file it starts lagging. I'm not really looking to spend more then $150 right now as I"m on a budget. My specs are AMD 4600x2, 1 gig of memory, 300 gig.

    I have found some but don't know how old or good they are:

    ATI X1900 XT 512 MB PCI-E
    ATI x1950 PRO 256MB PCI-Express x16 Video Card X1950PRO
    ASUS PCI-E GeForce EN7600GS Silent 512mb DDR2 SLi 7600
    Retail Box eVGA GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB PCI-E Card
    ATI Radeon X850XT 256MB PCI-E 16x Video Card
    EVGA e-GeForce 7600GT KO 256MB DDR3 PCI-E

    Wait a few days for the new video cards to come out. That will drop the prices of exisiting video cards, such as the eVGA GeForce 8 series.
    NVidia GeForce 8600GTS
    675 MHz Gpu
    32 Pixel Pipelines
    400 MHz RAMDAC
    256 MB, 128 Bit DDR3; 2000 MHz; 32 GB/s memory bandwidth
    PCI-E 16x Interface - DVI-I, DVI-I, HDTF-7
    Resolution and refresh: 240 Hz Max, 2560x1600 Max Analog, 2560 x 1600 Max Digital
    Requires a minimum of 400 watt power supply.
    Price is $174.95 now, and looking at a price closer to $150 target very soon.
    You will need at least a 400 Watt power supply of quality.

    Out of those card you've listed, the X1950PRO would be the best choice, however, it will be phased out because it's a DX9 card, and some DX10 games are coming in a few months....

    Thanks my motherboard is a MSI K8N NEO4 platinum PSU 400w (don't know the name) I'm using the card most for editing movies and some graphics. It also has to be compatiable with vista. I play call of duty 2, F.E.A.R, far cry and some others. I'll post my power supply info when I get home tonight.

    Okay....assuming you have fine specs for your PSU....I would suggest a GeForce 7600+ (that's my lowest choice.....I give this to you because I don't know your budget yet :unch: ). I have some others in mind....like a GeForce 7900(x).
