    Video card help

    I want to buy a 226BW Monitor. My concern is the video card. After opening all modes the monitor resolution needed of 1680 X 1050 is not shown. I've read some FX 5200 cards will work and some won't.

    What is your opinion on this card? Think it can be used? If not suggest a good card or how about this one? EVGA 256-A8-N295-LX GeForce 6200 LE 256MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card .


    I'm not really a gamer, just need a decent card to run my monitor at the correct resolution and not break the bank. The above card is $51 at newegg where I will buy the monitor. Do I really need any more ram?

    Pentium 4 3GB. 512 MB ram. GForce FX 5200 128MB. Its an HP A450N

    Thanks, reeo

    appreciate the offer

    but I wanted to have a card sent with the monitor so I would receive them at the same time. I would probably be getting in over my head technical wise anyway. Prefer to stay with Nvidia. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks, reeo
