@Captn Vortex, what about that 3870 you mentioned, only in this case for heavy multitasking, lots of graphics, and a 22" LCD—but no gaming?
This with an AMD x64 5200+ or 5600+ but hoping for as cool as possible, and a nice small electric bill?
Or would that graphics card be overkill, too hot and too heavy, and is there a better (ATI preferably) one you'd suggest?
(The 3870 was at NCIX in your city and mine for $200 until Feb 29; expect it will be again in another week or 2)
Thanks. (With apologies to tgraszat14; I just thought I'd ask while this card was being mentioned.)
