Man,

I was all set to order the Gainward GF3 Ti450 64Mb and then I read the "Good
entry level" thread.

Now I am wondering again...

Should it be: Gainward GF3 Ti450 64Mb or the

ABIT Siluro FX5200 DT 128MB DDR TV/DVI RETAIL
or
Leadtek NV34 Geforce FX5200 8XAGP 128MB VGA, DVI & TV-Out - RETAIL
or
Gainward FX5200, 8X AGP, 128MB(64bit) DDR
or
ASUS V9520Magic 64MB GeForce FX5200 Video Card - Retail

They are all about $75 - $80

I'll be putting it in a new Abit IS7-E, 2.4GHz C

I do a little gaming but this won't be a "ultimate gaming machine"

Thanks for your help.

I've never heard of a GF3 Ti450... Just looked at Gainward's site. Why
they are using 'Ti450' for the GF3 Ti200 eludes me. Is this a 'factory
overclocked' board? Or, is this some marketing scheme?

Either way, you will not be disappointed with the GF3 Ti200. The FX5200
wouldn't be a bad choice, either, for your purposes.
