    Default some advice please

    Hi am thinking of building a pc and need some help on a good graphics card. Willing to spend max about 150.
    System:
    motherboard- asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
    Amd 2600Barton
    Crucial 2 x 512mb DDR400 memory
    DVDr/w drive + CDR/w drive + floppy drive
    200GB HDD
    Roadmax case with 400W powersupply

    I mainly just use the pc for surfing the net and my other work etc. Games only play a few - championship manager, lord of the rings(return of the king).And also watching DVDs on the PC
    Am looking for one which is nice and cheap with good results for above.

    Am also building a similar rig to the one above with slightly lower specs and my budget on a graphics card for that is much lower - about 50, any advice on this one as well?

    Also which CPU coolers are best value for money and good. I was looking at coolermaster aero 7+. Anyone know of any shops/websites where I can get it in UK? Or of course if any suggestions to any other ones?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

Are XFX cards any good? what do you look for when shopping for a graphics card? how do you differentiate which is better 128mb or 256mb on the graphics card?(am sure someone told me that's a sticky area)
    Thanks for the help
