Kerry, Michael and Eric,
Thank you for your replies. One thing I forgot to mention, and for that I apologize, is that my ASUS motherboard has PCIe x16 socket that I believe would open up my VC possibilities and would be a better quality choice?
Anyway, I do look at Newegg as well as CompUSA, Best Buy, etc. and even with the user reviews, I'm kind of apprehensive.(I have much more faith in the opinions of the people in this forum than elsewhere.) I may look further into the Gigabyte GV-R455D3 that Eric suggested because I don't ever play games on my self-built. I have PS2 and will be getting Wii for the gamers in my house (the wife and grandson).
Again, thank you,
