    Default Video Card advice needed

    I just got a new MB with an AMD 5600 processor. I am currently using the AMD 690 graphics chip onboard.

    I want to get a new video card. I am considering the:

    Radeon 1950Pro
    GeForce 7900
    GeForce 8600GT

    Of these choices which will work best for me, since I like to play some first person shooters? If not for some gaming, the onboard graphics are more than adequate.

    the 7900gs is on par with the 1950pro but if you oc it should be better.

    8600....they made it run 10c cooler and it has DX10. I assume you will probably get close to the same frame rates with those cards, but the 8600 has more going for it in the future. ATi X1000 and GeForce 7000 series out, 8000 series in.
