Default Help please!

Hey guys,

I need some help. I have a co worker who isnt to technical savy and basically he wants to upgrade his graphix card.

Its a PCI slot and basically the most he plays is Flight Sim, he is pretty insane when it somes to the game, he has all the patches and addition sets you can get for the game.

What graphix cards would you recommend? Thanx in advance.

Natalya

VisionTek released the X1300 256MB PCI, so would definately be a good upgrade. It's $114.99 at Newegg.
