I was gonna buy a GeForce (prolly a 210 w/ 1g DDR2 RAM or w/e) but now I'm worried about that. Anybody wanna chime in? \

@Noobishness---> Is there really a noticeable diff. btwn ATI/NVidia?

16x pci-e 1.0 should be more than enough for 210. I was referring to 1x speeds.

Hey thanks guys for the info above. I am currently upgrading my HP Slimline s3300f. The original PSU was 160W and i've upgraded that to 300W. I've upgraded the Ram to 4GB. I'm now looking at upgrading the video card and am considering 2 options:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121404&cm_re=ASUS_ENGT220-_-14-121-404-_-Product

Which one should I go with? I understand I won't be able to use the cards to full potential because of the PSU limitations but it will still be better than the stock onboard graphics.

Thanks guys!
