    Right now I have an ATI 8 meg card installed. I want to install XP and I hear I need a 16 meg card...What do you suggest for a decent card? Should I get a PCI or AGP...does it matter? I don't want conflicts with Cubase, Reason,Tascam 428.

    Get an AGP...PCI video cards bog things down a little by sharing the PCI Bus..AGP has it's own bus to the processor without having to use an IRQ!! Go with ATI, Matrox or GeForce cards..and stay with 16MB
