Hello... i recently decided to buy a new video card. With the coming out of windows vista i settled to buy one that's compatible with directx 10: so do you know when will i able to find this kind of cards around the price of 250 dollars?

I've another problem: my LCD monitor supports only VGA standard.. so will this kind of video cards work with my lcd?

bye and happy christmas!

Any card that costs that much is going to have one or both DVI outputs. But...they always give you atleast one adapter for VGA. I don't know about the dx10 though.

If you only want to spend $250, you won't be getting a DX10 card for a while. the lowest end DX10 card out now, the 8800GTS, is over $450. Vista will run fine on DX9, and most games aren't going to use DX10 for a while, so you are probably best getting a 7900GT if you want to spend that much.

Also, make sure your motherboard has a PCIe slot and you have a large enough PSU before upgrading to any high end graphics card.

Look into the 8600 cards, those should be in your price range.

About the LCD, just about ALL graphics cards that are DVI that you buy will include a DVI to VGA adapter that will use the analog part of the DVI. You won't have any problems there.
