start reading

there's no way anyone can tell u everything u need to know. just read up as much as u can and choose a video card that suits your needs.

Spanky's right. Doing a little research will help you in the long run.



A couple of other questions:

1) What do you intend to do on this computer?

2) What is your budget?



Some (AT) members also have their computer specs in their signatures at the bottom of their message posts. You can check these for some pointers in what you may want to buy.

As always, research, plan, purchase, and prepare and considering this is your first time tread lightly.
