  2. You're kidding right ? The 7600GS is the only thing keeping it from being an
    excellent gaming system. With the 7600 it will be a solid one. Personally,
    with the money you are already spending, I think I'd raise my dollar amount
    about $50-75 and get the 7900GS or maybe even the 7900GT, If you can find a
    good deal.

  3. For most gaming, it will work great. Sure, you can spend a little more and
    get a better video card, but the 7600GS is no slacker. You may not be able
    to turn up the anti-alaising too high or run at uber high resolution, but in
    MOST games you should be able to run fairly high settings and be happy.

    Just watch out for the NVIDIA drivers. They are still a little (lot) buggy.

    Thanks for the input gentlemen, makes me happy :). I chose the
    NX7600GS-MTD256E Video card because it has DVI & HDMI output and supports my
    dual setup, and will let me watch HD on a TV. I will be a novice gamer
    (retired, old guy), and I'm glad you both think I made good choices. My
    first choice in video card was the MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E, but I needed cut
    some cost. I can always upgrade - Thanks again, IM

    Here's text from a post on the vista_music_pictures_video newsgroup
    "The new beta drivers are the best I've had in this vista beta 5744.

    My graphics are very very crisp. Nice Job U guys at Nvidia"

    A 7900GS is a joke. A GT perhaps, preferably a 7900GS or above. If you can
    afford it, there are some new cards out that might be interesting: the
    8800GTS 320MB - exactly the same as the 8800GTS normal but 320MB RAM instead
    of 640MB. It will blow most Nvidia cards out of the water and all but one
    ATI card and it only costs £200 (about $300 in the US).

    Just because you are a novice gamer doesn't mean you have to have poor
    graphics performance.

    I agree. if you buy a good novel card than a gamer can last uit out
    for a couple of years at least. looking at what wonders come out soon,
    Crysis e.g. you don't want to start with a disadvantage. I have chose
    to buy a new PC in the coming months. My card of choice will be a POV
    EN8800 GTS 640MB. It will cost me a much but at least I won't have to
    upgrade it in the couple of years.

    I don't think the case meets most minimum game requirements. ;)
