This Graphics Card is one that fits my budget for a new PC but I wanted to know if it will be ok for Video Editing and Photoshopping and such. I aim to use it with my new box (1tb HDD 4gb RAM) running on Leopord. I won't be playing any games (I got my Xbox 360 for that). Maybe you could recommend a better card for around £30.


Thanks Alot

I have a Radeon X1650 512MB and its pretty good for gaming, photo editing, video editing, etc. It was fully compatible with Tiger using modbin and kozlowski's fix but I don't know about Leopard. When you say £30 is that Euros or British Pounds?


The GeForce 7600GS is a very good card and you can pick it up for about $70.

Yep 7300GS is good also, but if you are going with the 7300x series, you might as well go for a 7300GT instead of GS. The price difference isn't much and you get better performance.


EDIT: Also, Radeon X1650 Pro is reported fully working with Leopard :blink:
