My Radeon 9600TX graphics card has burnt out, so I need to replace it with something similar. Gaming not required just a card for everyday use. The PC is 3 years old so I don't want to go OTT just need something to get me up & running again!

I second that one Speedy.

I only use Ascent Technologies (www.ascent.co.nz) Great to deal with, great after service support, free shipping, new website design... all the great things :thumbs: as many other people have found and recommend on this forum

I know, but cheapest is NOT always better, I prefer to pay the extra that Ascent charges and then I KNOW I am not going to regret it.

Anyway, micky what is your budget for a card?

I've only just started looking looked at some Harvey Norman $160 Albetron and DSE 9550se $136. Not sure what price really, just inquiring as to the best value for money! As I said don't want to go OTT if the PC does pack up.

Oh ok, wow, I just had a look at Ascent and they are only $5 cheaper than DSE for the 9550se... if you are really needing it now, I would just go and grab the one from DSE. But with AGP, the cards are actually increasing in price because of PCI-E cards now being the standard, so I would say the 9550se will do what you want

Try if the part you buy is faulty you wont get a replacement for about 6 months and they will screw you around big time? :groan:
