You want a good PCI Express card for under $150...I can mage suggestions in the $120-170 range.

try:

I prefer ATI products myself versus those of nVidia, Asus and their respective GeForce (or Xtasy if your goin el chepo) The ATI X600 and the X700 are solid PCI Express cards.

Get the most video muscle imaginable with like 128mb VRAM or more.. just work your budget from there.. or if you have no budget just get what costs the most.
