Hello, I’m helping a friend ordering a Dell Dimension 9150 which is onsale until tomorrow http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/features.aspx/hot_offers_dt?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd
It is for her school and the school will reimburse partly (must be a Dell).
We can’t decide between these video cards:
- 128MB PCI Expressâ„¢ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon X300 SE HyperMemory [Included in Price] Dell Recommended
- 256MB nVidia Geforce 7300LE TurboCache [add $40 or $2/month2]
- 256MB PCI Expressâ„¢ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) nVidia GeForce 6800 [add $150 or $4/month2]
- 256MB Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX [add $430 or $12/month2]
- 512MB ATI Radeon X1900 XTX [add $600 or $16/month2]
I think its obvious the choices are either ATI Radeon X300 SE or nVidia 7300 LE. But would like to hear some other opinions, maybe just take the default (x300) and buy other card online (cheap but better) and sell the x300? She will use it for graphics software but not too heavy like games.
