    I know i'm out dated, but all i have in my computer is pci slots. What would be the best video card to buy.:confused:

    I found a ati 7000 64mg for $149 canadian, but i'm not sure if it will be any better than the mx200 32mg that i tried. I wasn't impressed with that card.

    The Radeon 7000 is a much better card than the gf2 mx200.

    For the price, a gf2ti isnt too bad. The ATI cards seem to have better picture quality though. If you look around, you may find a good used deal, such as a gf3ti200 for $100.
    I got it here on the for sale threads from Wolfie44.
    Just some thoughts

    Blakhart, he needs a pci card. The gf3s don't come in pci versions.

    You can find PCI GeForce4 MX cards as well, better than both of those cards you listed.
