I just say atleast a 7k series because of vista. Gamer or not, because of the fact that it is a new computer that isn't going to have just a year or two left in life, for vista, you need atleast a nv7k or a ati1k. I have tried to get aero to work on a 6800, and it just won't do it, shader model 2 will not cut it. Personally I don't build a computer that cant run aero, even for $450 you can get a machine that will almost run aero(minus the ram).

Really grouse_3 needs to just tell what he/she will be doing with this machine before we start talking cheep/expensive gfx's....
