Rigging up a computer, graphics card suggestions

by lzlshintani / February 18, 2008 4:19 AM PST

I'm on a pretty tight budget here, so I was wondering what would be a decent video card that runs for about $100-200 for 3d modeling software like Maya.

I'm going to be using a GA-965P-DS3 for the motherboard, and an Intel Core 2 Duo e4500.

Any suggestions? I just want a straight answer and a brief explanation Happy
