I originally bought a ATI Radeon X1950 Sapphire 512MB (beautiful card)
unfortunately, my motherboard setup conflicts with the card, as the card is too long. The powersupply for my motherboard directly conflicts with the card.

I called the store I bought it from, and they told me this is the best alternative card, considering that my motherboard isn't meant to have high end gaming cards.

What do you think? Whats a good alternative? Is this a good alternative? Because the size of the video card is definitely a limiter, thats why the technician chose this one.


Thanks guys

It depends on what games you want to play using this card?
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

well I want to play Doom 3, Company of Heroes MAXED OUT

maybe shadows of Cherynbol Maxed out too.

I don't expect UT 2007, or Bioshock to be maxed out. But maybe all the 2005 and up to 2006 games, i want them all maxed out regardless of FPS or RTS

Then that's a pretty good card, I have an XFX 8600GTS XXX and can play Doom 3, Prey, CoH, Painkiller, Colin Mcrae's dirt, Quake 4 easily.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
