I'm getting a new graphic card as my previous one died on me.. frown.gif As my motherboard is kinda old, I'm having a hard time choosing my graphic card because my motherboard on support the old cards. Can anyone please recommend me a cheap graphic card? I'm thinking of getting either Asus ENGT430 or Asus EAH5450 1GB. Are the 2 cards compatible with my motherboard, Asus P5Q PRO?? Thank you in advance!!! biggrin.gif

If you're only using a single card it won't matter if it's AMD or Nvidia, either will work fine smile.gif
If you were talking multiple cards though, your chipset only supports Crossfire (SLI would only work with a hack)
