Specs: Windows XP, Intel celeron 3.06 ghz with 512 mb ram
At current situation i have 100$ remaining for graphics card. I am a bit confused as ati cards cost very less than nvidia cards and performance of ati is also good.I want to play current and upcoming games at a resolution of 1024*768 pixels screen. so which should i choose the best card as i am also planning to buy a new CPU which can easily run new and upcoming games easily

G31 is just the Intel chipset. How about giving the full make/model number of of the components.

720W is meaningless it is the Manufacturer and the Amperage on the rails which is important, and yet again you do not list motherboard specs.

I saw your post in cpu/overclocking forum. So u have $200 (gaming cpu and v-card). Intel G31 support c2d but better list the board model.
Cpu- pentium dual core e5400 $69 (newegg.com)
Video card- geforce 450gts $130 (newegg.com) (+12v@24 450w=power requirement for the whole system) FREE SHIPPING.

well, answering the first post, i suggest to check the mobo and power supply specs to see what graphic card to get
if your power supply has small wattage (300w more or less), i would save money and later buy a 600w PS and a ATI Radeon HD 5770 or GeForce GTS 250 for some reasonable gaming.
