my cuzin just got a new PC, a Dell Dimension E521
He needs a graphics card that is compatible with Windows Vista and
Spider-Man 3. Any ideas?
His PC has AMD 64 X2 3600 and 1GB RAM and an available PCI-Express slot.
Please help, thank you! :D

NVidia GeForce 8800 GTS/GTX...if you got the money for it...plus, it'll make you ready for the upcoming DirectX10 games...

7300's are bad. Get a 7600.

i'm with jmac on this one. the 8600 is DX10 compatible which means that you'll be able to utilize DX10 graphics. plus, its at a very attractive price. what more could you want??

Aawww. You know, there's no true love. Just fervent sexual longing. *grabs jmac, holds him tight in a manly way and strokes his golden curly hair* And it's sooo much better...

quit the clownin'...this isnt the swamp/ahto ;)

8600 for a good budget card....absolutely.

I prefer XFX cards, but theyre always a bit more expensive.. :(

Heres one... $145 for the XFX aint too bad:

Dont forget, XFX are one of the rare hardware manufacturers that offer a LIFETIME warranty ! Which says a heck of alot about their Quality Assurance/Control...

please do *not* get a 7300 - they are a caching card....and in Vista work even worse... (vista drivers arent handling 7 series GPU caching as well as xp drivers, of course)
