    I'm looking at building a new PC for my dad for general use. (Windows, DVD, some photo editing, basic video editing, music) The graphics need to be PCI-E for around £40-50, maybe cheaper. But £50 is the maximum. The OS will be Vista Home, if that makes a difference.

    I was looking at the Ati Sapphire 256mb x1600pro or the Sapphire 256mb HD2400XT for about the same price, £44.

    Would I be right in thinking the 2400XT is the one to go for? Or is it intended just for HTPCs? He won't be gaming on it.

    Thanks for any help.:)

    If he won't be gaming, then the HD2400XT is a good choice. The next best card is £15 more, but for what you want the HD2400XT is good enough.
