Which graphics card?

Recommended Posts

I have an Athlon 1600+ based system, about 1 year old, with a GeForce3 Ti500 graphics card, 512MB RAM, winXP Home. I've recently put an old Matrox Millenium PCI card in to test the XP dual monitor facility and I love it. However, the old Matrox card is a bit underpowered for driving the second screen, an iiyama 19" CRT, so I'm looking to upgrade the graphics. Finding PCI graphics cards is a bit difficult nowadays and the obvious route seems to be to go for a single card that supports dual monitors. I want one of the outputs to be digital to drive the primary monitor, an 18" LCD.Now, here's my problem. I could rush out and buy a GeForce4 Ti4600, or an ATI Radeon 9700, but I suspect that these would be a waste of money insofar as they would far exceed the capabilities of the cpu. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the optimum sort of card would be for an Athlon 1600+?Thanks

Not wanting to steal your fire but would also like to hear what fellow simmers think about the nVidia Quattro FX card? I'm thinking about upgrading myself from the G-force3.Kilstorm
