Default also...help

When it comes to video cards I am a little confused? It would say something like this a "Nividia Geforce 6600 256mb w/DVI + TV output" and then another option is like "Nividia Geforce 7300gt 512mb w/DVI + TV output" What do all the numbers and things mean? And how can you tell how good or fast a video card is?Thank you.

Pixelpipelines matter a lot. A geforce 7950 GTX is the best you cna get, Or a 1800 ATI. 7300 is like a low budget card, a 7900 is a one of the best. Whats your budget?

And ram is just how much ram is on the GPU, nothing more.

Ah ok, 1800 1900 IDK I don't keep up with ATI cards.

I heard the 1900 is the best single card, the 7900x2 owns the 1900x2 though.
