I am currently looking for the best graphic card out there for my computer which has only PCI slots. The graphic card has to be 256MB DDR or what ever has the highest clock speed right now. Any help would be of great help. Thanks Ps. I am not interested in upgrading my motherboard to an AGP slot even thou I should.

For a high performance pci slot card, doesnt it require more memory Ex. the geforce 5200(256MB) vs NEWER 5700(128MB)? which is better and why not the Readeon 9250? Thanks for your help as I plan to buy one this CHRISTMASS

And we had the 5200 256M and the 5700le 128M. Guess which did better.

Just passing along what we learned. YOUR CHOICE!!!

Good luck with the ATI.
