I am looking at the possibility of upgrading to vista. I ran the upgrade wizard and it looks like I will need a new video card.
Presently I have a Radeon 7200 AGP with 64 MB memory. I assume this is a PCI card. I have an Abit KG7 motherboard and 1 GB ram. The DAC is internal DAC, 350 Mhz. I am using a Mag 17" LT-765 monitor.
I have never outright purchased a video card in my near 10 years of computing, except with a new computer. There are so many types out there I am a very confused senior citizen.
I don't need a gamer video card but I heavily use Photoshop CS2 & PSP 10 with Raw files from a Canon 10d. Other than that my video needs are quite ordinary.
Basically what type video card do I need and what should I stay away from? I also do not need to spend an arm and a leg on it but I'd be willing to go $100 to a max of $150.
My first ever video card was a #9 imagine 128 with 4 MB VRAM with a price tag of $600 that went in a 200 mhz Pentium Pro. My how times have changed.
Any help is highly appreciated.
