Talking question about upgrading my graphics card

at the moment i have a geforce 2 32mb. i want a really decent graphics card like a 256mb one i have found this one. firstly could anyone tell me wether this is actually a decent card? it says 256mb which i think is the best right? if it is i dont understand why this 256mb car is only 60 and other 256mb cards are like 300?!

Depends what you would use this for. cards that cost around 300 mainly have very great ways with games and video editing, as of hey can take mass loads of data and display lots of pixels very finely at a great refresh rate. And this card is not the best and newest card on the block. You may want to say what you will be using it for. personaly i love the look of raedeon 9800pro's.

I agree, and if you don't have the money for a 9800 pro,buy this one: Powercolor 9600 XT, great card and is around 180 bucks!
