    Has anyone heard or seen anything good or bad about the ATI OEM RADEON 9000 Atlantis 64MB DDR W/TV out NO DVI. I am prolly good build a decent computer for a buddy of mine.

    He doesn't play games at all..but he would like to watch DVD on it and maybe just maybe play a game or two...maybe. So i wanna keep cost minimum and get him best deal. As of now i have this as his future setup:

    AMD XP 1600+ (54 USD..not bad)
    KX7-333 (87 bucks)
    SB Live
    *Decent Video Card

    Radeon cards have a long history of doing very well playing DVDs. The do the decoding in hardware which makes for smooth playback and low cpu usage. It should also be fine for the majority of games, though the ones with heavy duty hardware requirements may bog it down. Should be a reasonable budget card.
