Yeah, but you don't see where I'm going. If I don't have a graphics card I cant see anything.. I can't see if everything is working as it's suposed to. I'm already going to be pushing the "7 day" return thing as it is... I'm getting

This ram as it is.. I don't need any extra money to spend on anything, I just need a cheap video card to sub. Plus 15 days is a long time. And it's going to be even longer during summer.





ANswered. Thanks

If you don't want to do any gaming and all you need to do is browse the internet, check e-mail, etc. Then just get the cheapest card you can find that will work with your computer.

Thanks now if you want to take a look at my other post

How about this TV tuner

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815116015

Never mind. Only has audio ports.


This one has a video rca port as well, I want to play my xbox on it.. that's why I want it.
Although it's compatable with media center. I have XP. Will it still work?

Xbox will work with that tuner. You dont need media center.

If you get that WinTV tuner the xbox setup for it is here:

After you install it just connect the xbox to the tuner and it should work

Ok, thanks.


Wait a minute. What's the difference between this one and the others... this one can record TV and can also have a system in it (through RCA) - while others only have the sound two rca ports.
