How to choose a Graphics card

This is more for new builders to try and help them figure out what card to choose based on their needs. I will link to a couple of useful articles and then to the whole page of articles on this. Why? My hope is that it will help new builders understand the basics and how to learn some understanding of all the differences between them. First article covers mostly Nvidia. Gix Explains How to choose the right Graphics card Giz Explains: How to Choose the Right Graphics Card - Graphics Cards - Gizmodo The second article explains in more detail about AGP, PCI and PCI ExpressX16, memory, DirectX and OpenGL as well as Clock speed, Pixel Pipelines and stream Processors From Life123 Then finally just a google search on How to choose the correct video card and all the articles available how to choose the sorrect video card - Google Search Hopefully this will help new members and builders with this decision.
