>have a Geforce
Since CS4 does not use the GPU hardware for much (that was added in CS5, for certain nVidia cards) almost any card will work with CS4
Try what you have... if it does not work to your satisfaction, look at an ATI with more video memory
I agree with John. You're current card should work fine. To get better performance, look to upgrading your CPU.
Don't invest anything in that machine. It is like an extinguished dinosaur, that is too slow for anything today. What machine still has an AGP slot?
Start saving for a new machine.
Well I have thought about everything and tried CS4 in the comp and its not going to well. Not bad but not well.
I am going to have to bite the bullet and build a new one. Here is what I am thinking, any input or changes most welcomed

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7073161&sku=I69- 2500K - Not top of the line however not getting into much of the highend editing effects and such
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131687 - Great Motherboard I have researched and read about
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102865 - More then enough for video editing I think
I have 2 1.5 tb harddrives already so I wont need to buy any more. Let me know if this is a good start or to much. Thanks.
For CS4 it is a good choice. For CS5 you need much better specs.
