Howdy, If you wqant to be able to run last years games and watch full screen (1600 X 1200) video, the Nvidia 6600GToc works very well. The fan on it is quieter under full load then a high end 125mm case fan. I can't say if it will run 2006's releases of games, but it runs DOOM 3, UT2k4, Quake 4 very well. Best of luck.
