I have a ABIT LX6 board with a P2 333 processor. I'm trying to put this PC together while trying to spend as little as possible. Can anyone recommend a decent video card that has a some sort of output? My primary use for this computer will be Web Browsing, MP3 jukebox, and DVD playback. I'd like to keep the board under $100. The board has an AGP (2x) slot. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Matrox are tops at 2d and since your not gaming get either a G450 or G400.Their price is low to because of their poorer 3d (gaming ) quality.The G450 has a TV out and built in DVD support not sure about the G400. You could probably get away with a 16mb version rather than the 32mb and keep the cost even lower. http://www.matrox.com/mga/products/comp_chart/g400_vs_g450.cfm

I bought mine as an OEM ,it came with the Driver disk and TV-out cable for $169Cdn(and I've ssen them cheaper online) ,so you should be able to find one in your price range.

Thanks. I ended up finding a decent deal on an ATI All-In-Wonder card. This had the outs that I was looking for. Thanks for the help.
