  1. Im putting together a computer for a friend of mine, and so far it has the Athlon XP 2800 CPU, with the Shuttle AN25/N Ultra mobo, and a gig of ram. Everything is all up and running, but he wants to put a good video card in it. I know what he really wants to be able to do is to play Oblivion. Hes not going for a high resolution, just 1024x768. So the question is this... Which video card would be a good match for this system, without bottlenecking the CPU? Any help on this would be great, I just dont want to go out and spend $120 on a video card, thats just going to bottleneck the system. -Dennis

    At Tiger Direct the Nvidia 7600 GT OC is a 256mb card w/128bits. Core clock is 580mhz, memory clock 1450 mhz with a memory bandwidth of 23.2 GB/sec. Good numbers for your $120 price that you mentioned. It's $144.99 but has a $30 rebate.($114.99). For that price range you won't do much better. Good Luck.
