Alright guys. The other day I posted about the geforce 5200 256mb video card a bud of mine was going to sell me for 60 bucks. I already have a 128mb version of the 5200 and I was thinking about getting this one for this computer, and give the 128 to my second computer. I have been thinking that now would be the time to really get a good card. The geforce 5200 just plain sucks...I know...I have the 128 version. I don't even think there is really any difference between the two versions except the obvious wich is...one is 128, the other is 256
I just don't need 256 mb of useless ram. I have a 4x agp slot and that card is sucky as the one I have in now...it would be pointless to spend a good 60 bucks on that piece of shit. I need a good card.
I have been eyeballing the 9600xt. I have looked at its features, and I can see how much the 9600xt kicks the geforce 5200's ass. I have 70 bucks on me. My fiance will give me 50. I can get some more tomorrow when she gets paid...
I think this is a shot to get a better card. Why waste 60 on a geforce 5200 256, when I can add a little more to that to get the 9600xt.
You're probably asking "What the fuck are you trying to say Cade..."
Well. Once again, I need to know if I should go for this. Half-life 2 voucher is bundled with it, so that is a comfirting thought...obviously if a game is bundled with a video card, chances are that the game will run on the video card. Couldn't paint a bigger sign...
Anyone here with the 9600xt, that can tell me how well it runs. Does it do good with high settings in most games.
I do have 384mb of ram. 1.8 ghz proccessor. 40 and 20 gb hard drives. I am planining on gettin a Gig of ram in about two weeks so...shouldn't worry about that.
Give me some info guys, thanks
