nvidia just make better all around cards. Of course people are going to disagree with me but its alot like the amd intel thing. Intel of course is obviously the sucky one of the group the line on vid cards arent as defined. I would suggest a 6600gt for ya cause its a good card but not incredibly expensive. Make sure you get dual channel memory. Its worth the few bux more.
