    Post Video card questions......

    I am about to buy a video card and I again am trying to save money wherever possible. And I am not much of a gamer so I don't know a ton about all of the cards.
    My motherboard is an intel se440bx-2 that is 1x agp compatible. I am assuming that the cards are backwards compatible. The card needs to be able to allow me to watch divx movies and play emulated games.

    That said, I am looking at the Diamond Stealth III s540 32mb card, and also a TNT2 32 mb card.

    Any recommendations are welcome, and thanks in advance for the help.

    (Sorry for the double post, I just realized this was the best place for this topic)

    I have the TNT2 32mb w/ tv out. I play dvd's through it and used to play every game from oldschool warcraft1 to Unreal tournament.

    I have always been sketchy on Diamond cards. I've heard bad things about the drivers for them and compatibility with directX. But i cant testify to it.

    Nvidia is on top of the Video card industry. Id go with the TNT2.
