I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, and on Tom's Hardware website, a couple of users suggested this card:
GN Radeon 9600PRO 256MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card
Looking for Nividia-is there a comparable card, or other suggestions. I am not looking to upgrade my computer at this time, just want to upgrade card for now. I have a an Intel Pentium 1.7 -I know it is old, but have upgraded memory, etc, so am not looking to replace yet. Thanks

I need to know what you plan on playing/doing

I'd suggest

6600GT/1600XT/1650Pro/7600GT

that 9600Pro is pure garbage now completely obsolete

I'm not a big gamer but till I upgrade down the road looking just to pump up the performance. Right now I'm using FX 5200.

Get the Geforce 6600 Vanilla ( standard edition ) , dont go any higher since your processor will be a big bottleneck .

Performance wise its around 9700 pro . It also overclocks well.
