Budget is pretty wide open, but I'm sort of a price/performance type.
The reason for the question is I understand ATI and NVIDIA focus on 3D while 2D performance has been left to rot. Kind of understandable since games like
3D performance. I didn't know if some of the "older" cards, say some issued prior to the gaming craze, have better 2D performance than the newest cards.
Appreciate the input.
