    HELLO PLEASE PEOPLE SHOW ME THE WAY...

    I HAVE A ASUS A7N8X-X IM PLANNING TO GET ONE OF THESE TWO VGA CARDS WHICH ONE YOU GUYS THINK IS BETTER.

    ATI:

    ATI Radeon 9600 SE Sapphire 128MB Retail
    AGP 8X DVI+CRT+TVO
    9600SE/325MHz : Memory/Effective: DDR/392MHz
    DirectX®9, OpenGL®2.0 2048X1536@85Hz

    NVIDIA:
    GAINWARD GeForce FX 5200 Video Card, 128MB DDR
    FX5200/250MHz : Memoria/Effective Speed: 128MB DDR/312MHz
    VGA Out(15 Pin D-Sub)+TV-Out(S-Video)+DVI connector Suporte 3D API: DirectX®9, OpenGL®1.4
    Not Specified Max Resolucion@32bit Color: 2048X1536@85Hz

    SO! THOSE ARE THE OPTIONS I HEARD A LOT OF BAD STUF FRON ATI VIDEO CARDS ARE THEY TRUE? IS NVIDIA CARDS MORE STABLE.

    Why not go with this card?
    ASUS nVIDIA GeForce FX5200 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 64-bit, TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "V9520 Magic/T" -RETAIL

    I have swore by Nvidia for years, but recently I have built a few computers with ATI and they seem to work great. either one should work good with your Mobo. You may want to go with the one that has the name brand ASUS though for better compatablity with your MoBo..
