What video card do you have now? How much RAM do you have now?

Go to www.newegg.com and buy a geforce 4 ti4200. You can get a nice 128mb one for $119 after a small ($30) rebate or you could just get one for $140 with no rebates. This card beats out the 9000pro in every document of benchmarking that I have found, Also you should haveenough left over for a 256 of DDR at that site though u might need to save up just a little more. If its too much you can still get one of the nicest 64mb versions and it will play PS very well.

Yeah, the 9000 is ass. The 8500 (now called the 9100 :rolleyes: ) is more powerful than the 9000. Get a GF4 or an 8500.
