It is a toss-up , six ppl love ati , six love nvidia. I personally am a gamer, i run 2 nvidia 8600's (256m each). This is a personal preference.
My advise to you is look at the system requirements of your games you have or want to buy and see what video card they are optimised for, buy that one , but go a little beyond the specifications needed for the game as you dont want to upgrade again soon.
also take note if your PC has a 2x , 4x , or 8x agp bus. this will determine how much of an 8x card you can use in your system. for example , if you have an 4x AGP slot on your computer and install a 8x card, the card will run at 4x.
other things to consider. clock speeds are diferent on the same card from different manufactures as they customize the software and some beef up the clock settings. so you could buy the same card from two different makers and they will operate differently as for as performance.
I have had a lot of luck with nvidias' albatross 6600 GT 128Meg agp 4x card. i replaced it with a newer ATI x1200 256meg agp 8x and it only ran about two thirds as fast as the nvidia card with twice the bandwitdh.
in conclusion, i switched back as the 6600gt was actually a pci-e card with an agp interface (first generation pci-e)
i am fond of nvidia for gaming , but also know you get what you pay for in video cards.
Hope this helps in the decisiond making.
Regards.

Yes the battery pack would be the most likely culprit here. Go on eBay and buy the correct battery cells and build one using the old one as a guide. This method will save you about 50% over trying to buy a make up replacement if available. This is an easy job, just take your time, buy batteries with solder tabs.

How can i get a free download of windows 8.


there is no such thing as a free download of a microsoft product
you may get a disc for win 8 but to make it work you will have to buy the licence to register it and that is as costly as buying the disc to start with
the only free operating systems are LINUX--ubantu and it is far better than microsoft when you get the hang of uing it

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise


One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

Does a samsung stratospher need a sims card to ativate?


It depends on the carrier. After checking the specs though the phone comes back as a 4G LTE device so you will need a SIM card for ATT, Sprint, and Verizon. If you are on something like Straight Talk or MetroPCS, then they do not use SIMs

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    How to install Anti virus on my desktop


    Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

    Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

    Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

    Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.

    Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


    This can be for a number of reasons.

    First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

    If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

    Hope this helps.
