Newegg has a large variety of PCI cards.

Here they are, cheapest to most expensive.

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Video Cards & Video Devices,Desktop Graphics / Video Cards,PCI

You generally want something with DirectX 10.1. Any that do that are guaranteed to be good for Aero. DX9 is good too, but I see no sense in that.
So I advise DX10.1.

Have a look at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187041

thats a nice card.. but i dont just want one choic or one company

ide like some solutions from both the leaders

knowing ALL the cards both company's have produced in pci would be of great help

ide love to have an ATI if i can find one in DX9
hell even a via chrome would do just fine
but newegg doesn't carry them

You want to only spend $30 but also have a range of choices? That's unrealistic.

At that price it doesn't matter much at all. None will really be better than others. If it has DX10, you're good to go for Aero. Since you don't play games, no other specs matter. Either NVidia or ATI solution will be great. Doesn't matter.

If you want digital brilliance enhancement, which I find cool on very low setting, go NVidia.

no its VERY realistic its PCI almost none wants them

saying if you want the best go with Nvidia
thats like saying if you want a good CPU go with Intel ide rather have VIA

the chrome when it was RTMd just 1 year ago was $30

and that was pcie dx10 i know they still make pci cards they are the truly budget company

at this agent of tech 30 is a very resinoble price point
50 is more of a gaming capableity for pci

lol where did I say NVidia is best? I'm actually an ATI enthusiast, especially from HIS. I said, "none will be better than others." That qualifies as a neutral position, no?

My point was that you want Aero, buy any PCI card with DX10, doesn't matter if it is made on Mars by an alien company, you'll be satisfied all the same.
