    Hi

    Can anyone give me advice on which graphics card to use. The system will be mostly used for DVD playback, I have read numerous posts regarding Radeon cards. I was looking at the 7200 but that does not seem to be available anymore. I have looked into the VE but people seem to be divided on its use. Can anybody advise me or reccomend a suitable card.

    Paul

    I have both a Supergrace VE and a 'Built by ATI' 7500.

    The 7500 is noticeably better on a monitor but is noisy with the heat sink fan. The VE is fine on my projector (AE-100) but not so good on monitors.

    You could remove the heatsink and fan on the 7500 and fit a Zalman passive cooler but be very careful if you do. I managed to destroy one card doing this!!!
