Graphic card spec

i was just wondering which is the min spec for rendering graphic and animation? Can X1300Pro provides a good result? Which is better ATI or Nvidia?
Thx:)

The graphic card is only used for opengl in the interface and the game engine. A mid range nvidia card is adequate. Nvidia has better opengl support than ati – so definately nvidia. The actual rendering of animations and stills is dependant only on your cpu power.

My Cpu is Pentium® CPU 2.80GHz with 1GB of RAM. Can my cpu speed up my rendering, or does the ram have to do with it? It is because my rendering speed is kinda slow. My card is geforce 7300GT, 128bit. It works fine for interface. thanks
