Re: What PCIe card ?
When looking for a graphics card, make sure the card has Vista support,
further, with 1G of RAM, make sure the card doesn't lean too heavily on
onboard memory (that is on the 1G), a lot (most) PCI-X cards use a
combination of memory on the card and memory installed in the system.
Lastly, check the power requirements that the video card presents to
your system -- higher end PCI-X16 cards pull a lot of power (and
generate a lot of heat). The thing here is that with a cheap second
hand card, if it has active cooling (fan) -- the trick is to make sure
the fan works properly and is reasonably quiet.
