OverwatchBecause I thought maybe something was wrong with the mobo, I didnt actually question the 6100 being better than the 5200.

Well i can tell yu the 6100/6200 onboard are not that much better yu would of been ALOT better replacing the 5200 with a decent agp card. I'm sure no one in the tech forums directed yu to a onboard video card unless yu were planning to go PCI express. [/INDENT]

It's a PCI-e motherboard. So he is open for much better cards.

The ones you listed were AGP.

If he were to buy something good. He might aswell go the distance and buy something like a 7900GT.

Depending on his budget.

then that's two months you'll have to deal with it. The video card is NEVER something you want to go cheap on when even considering building a gaming rig. My line of thought is to buy the best video card and build your system around it nowadays. I can't wait to see what they offer for DX10. the VC is the heart and sould of a gaming rig, as your learning the hard way now. Heck, go cheap on your case, your sound card and maybe even your HDD, but never on your VC. isn't it summer vacation where your from? time maybe for some odd jobs to raise some money. if your folks see you working hard for some cash, maybe they'll help you and you can get a better card for your bday. Good luck.
