Should I worry about my graphics card options?
For the average computer user, any current graphics card option is more than enough power. Therefore, make your selection according to price, not performance.

However, if you have a teen or preteen in the house, look for a powerful 3D graphics card since undoubtably the machine will be used for gaming. The graphics card, combined with system memory, will make a system much faster for 3D graphics rendering.

As far as brand, either Nvidia or ATI will provide an excellent card. For those who also wish to watch TV on their systems, the ATI All-in-Wonder series of cards is a good choice. Either company will provide a card suitable for dual-monitor performance.
