I am building a desktop computer to be used for schoolwork and gaming.I am using the Ivy Bridge Customac budget build and I was wondering what I should do for an additional graphics card.If i need one and what I should get that is cheap and good enough.The computer will run both Mac mountain lion and Windows 7.
Thanks

Depends on what you consider to be "cheap" and "good enough" for gaming. The http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130796&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=4902415&SID= is the least expensive of the recommended cards for Mountain Lion and you need 10.8.2 to get full native support for it.
