Thank you

Well, now I am sort of stuck between the 7300GT that you mention and the cards that Vermaden mentions. Price is not the main issue here, but 'green computing', eg low energy consumption, is. Of course, I should be able to use my box in a nice way, so the card should be up for it.

So remaining to be done:
- The videocard
- The mainboard (the chipset Q35 Vermaden recommends).

Pfff, buying a computer was much, much, easier in the old days
