Default Re: Buying new video!

256MB won't make any difference unless you're playing games, or watching a DVD on a second screen. If you use a second screen, and might go with 2 LCD's at some point, I'd look for a dual DVI card. They should come with a DVI-to-VGA adapter anyway. Also, I haven't used an ATI card in a long time (because their drivers were slow to get updates), so I'd recommend an NVIDIA (GeForce) card - the drivers are updated often, and it is easy to find the right file to download because the FX5200, 5500, 5700, etc. all use the same download package. And for dual-screens, NVIDIA is easier to deal with (based on what I remember from how ATI used to be).
