He was so happy and but his happiness ended when he installed his favorite game doom. Its not opening and the graphics are not clear he was so upset with me that he could nt play his game, I came to know about graphic card and also found the best is NVIDIA, for playing doom game which graphic card is suitable i need to install that also for the kid , i expect a swift reply on this .
Hi, I didn't read through the whole thread so I don't know if you got your answer. Basically if you're talking about the original doom (I && II) you may be out of luck as they run on dos emulation.

But the more likely case is that you're talking about Doom3, this card for about 75USD would run it fine:
EVGA 256-P2-N741-LR GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130287

7600GS go for about the same price, anything at or over an nvidia 8500 or over an nvidia 7600 will run the game fine.
