Cheap Graphics Card
My friend wants me to pick out a graphics card for him. I have a couple of questions, first one being, what is a good graphics card, AGP 4x/8x for $200-50?
I foud the Sapphire Radeon X800GTO a pretty good one for the price ranging. Anyone know of any faults with it, or can recomend a better?
My second question is; he has built in graphics, but empty, available AGP slots. So if he gets a graphics card, will it over ride the built in graphics processor? As in, everything will be working the way it should be, and the computer will be using the graphics card in the AGP slot instead of the built in graphics, right?

1st question: yes it is a good card, GTO˛ might even be better for the price
2nd question: you'll have to disable the onboard VGA in the BIOS I'm guessing to make it work flawlessly
