    what video card to get?

    I have an ATI All-in-wonder 128 16mb which has served me quite well. The card is still tops.. but I'm a bit limitted as far as gaming and emulation.

    I don't play games all that much at all really.. my primary uses are for graphics and watching television, but I can't really play Warcraft3 because it just looks wretched.

    So now I need to figure out what I want to do about a video card. I don't need the top of the line card.. but I'd like something that will suit my needs for a few years.

    I have pretty much figured that to get something that is fairly inexpensive I'm going to have to get a USB tv tuner or something..

    I'd like to find something under $100 that is going to be a solid card for a few years.

    Let's hear your suggestions!
    Thanks

    i would say go with an ATI Radeon. i know it comes in a ton of different versions and the support for it is amazing. if you look on pricewatch.com i bet you can find a good one for less than $100. i have a Radeon in the car and i love it.
