    Best Videocard for my system

    I'm looking to spend $220 or less on the best vid card for my system. Here is all the info for it:
    http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport...Tfile=bph05397

    I know that the huge Voodoo 5500 board won't fit in my case, so it looks like it'll be a Geforce of some sort, but which is best for me?

    thanks.

    I would get an ATI radeon 32 mb ddr. They are nearly as fast as the geforces, but have a much better feature set and image quality. Just ordered one myself. Your cpu/mem etc looks like it would do nicely with that card.

    ATI Radeon would be a considerable upgrade to the 8 MB Nvidia Riva TNT Vanta
