Ed, whether or not you should get a new video card depends on what you hope to accomplish by doing so. If you're looking for more performance at low-mid resolutions with low-mid detail settings, there's no need to get a new video card, you'd be much better off buying a new cpu, mobo, ram, and hd. However, if you want to get better performance at higher resolutions with higher detail settings, you may indeed want to get a new video card as this scenario is where your video card will come into play a lot more than at lower resolutions/deatil settings. If you want a nice card on a budget, check out the GF4 Ti 4200. If you have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket and you must have the best of the best, check out the GF4 Ti 4400 and 4600. If you can wait another two months or so, get a Parhelia when it's available ;)Max Cowgill
