Question about ASUS 865G (MBAS-P4P800VM) Motherboard
Are you asking about what graphic card you should get? If so, I recommend anything that's geforce 7600GT+.
I recommend nVidia because a lot of games are built for nVidia. I'm not saying ATI is bad, they are good. It's just that you'll run into artifact issues (where you see tears in graphics) with some games if you go with ATI.
Go to sites like, www.newegg.com, or www.tigerdirect.com to look for a card.
If you have PCI Express, then go with that. If it's AGP, then go with that. It's all based on what your board supports.
If you're looking to run F.E.A.R, Qauke, or Battlefield, you won't need much. I would recommend at least 128mb video on the card you choose, but if you do have PCI express, I would suggest getting a 512mb video card for future gaming.
the geforce 8600GT is a good buy too. Typicall they are around $140, they have 512mb vid and have GDDR3 memory, (good clock speed on those cards). They can run those games no sweat.
Hope this helps.
(Btw, the geforce8600GT is directx 10 compatible)
