    I went to Circuit City today.
    Saw a cheap gfx card and got it.
    Its a ATI Radeon HD 2400

    I know you people are going to say I should have got a Nvida card but this was cheap xD

    I was wondering if this card is any decent to play games like MoH: Airbourne, Bioshock etc.
    Also if it can run in my computer that I currently have.

    The computer I currently have is a Sony Vaio VGC-RC110G

    I'm going to be blunt.

    the following cards suck for their cost

    ATi HD2600
    nVidia 8400
    nVidia 8500
    nVidia 8600

    The 2400 and 8400 are worth roughly $30 in my book.

    if you paid more, return it.

    following cards are better buys
    7300GT(based off the 7600 core)

    x1650(faster than the 7300 FYI)

    and for the record, anyone who buys into the whole ATi vs. nVidia bull---- is ignorant. Both are companies. Both design video chipsets. Neither makes them though, and they use largely the same manufacturers to make the chips. It's a constant battle. traditionally ATi has had the better chipset the last few generation of cards, but has been late to the game. This generation ATi got their asses beat despite ebign WAY late, but they priced their products competitively to compensate.
