Default Video CARD@!!!!@#$

ok this is officially my last video card post...
here are the two cards im debating on:

http://anitec.ca/product/6038/evga_e...b_pci_express/

or

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...Tab=2&NoMapp=0

both cards are basically the same right? or is one faster than the other? im leanin towards the first 1 cuz its cheaper ... but the second 1 has a free game,...but i dont care about the game anyways so im most likely gonna buy the first 1. will a 420 watt Stealth PSU run the first 1 or 2nd 1 or both? and is is it true that the faster ur psu the faster ur video card will work or better graphics?

The cards are identically - get the cheaper one.

That PSU will run them both. And you can't get a 'faster' PSU - the PSU simply provides the power to the components; three things determin how good a PSU is:

1. The stability of its rails (how close to what their meant to be, e.g. 12V, the output is)
2. The efficiency (how much energy the PC uses as a percentage of how much is taken from the mains)
3. The highest amount of wattage it can provide

I would go for the first one. It is cheaper, and the specs say it has a higher Memory Bandwith.
