The link isn't working for me. How much do they want for the x1550 and what is your budget?

Um, that link you provided takes me to Extreme PC's main page...

did you mean this X1550 256mb?

If this is the one you're talking about, I would suggest something different. That is a pretty old card.... I'm not trying to flame, but if I were you I'd go for a geForce 8500GT over that X1550 any day. Much newer technology and 128-bit memory makes a good for a good budget card, even if you don't need DX10.

This MSI 8500GT is a great deal, and coincidentally - look at the first review that popped up:

Quote:
Pros: very nice card! a great improvement from my 6150 LE onboard. very nice for gaming such as BF2, CSS, and many others. as i understand its a mediocre DX10 card but who knows, there arent any DX10 games out there yet. very nice card for the average gamer but i would recommend the 8800 gts/gtx for the all out gamer. this is a very nice card for viewing pictures and editing videos and all that everyday stuff. very fast shipping, thanks newegg!!!

Why don't you get a 8500GT, now it's the the for DX10 cards even though you don't have Vista, you can always upgrade later and all that.
