    Unsure

    I want a new videocard, i don't need the best card available because i'm going to buy a new pc in Januari 2007.

    Price: 125 euro's max.

    Current specs:
    Jetway V266B (AGP 4x)
    AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (1.67GHz)
    512 MB ram
    Creative Live! 5.1
    GeForce4 MX 4000



    I have no idea which one i should buy,
    I think that the Sapphire Radeon 9600 XT 128MB would be good, but me is a hardware noob

    AGP 4x will be a big limiting factor.

    Why do you want to upgrade? Can't the one you have serve until the new PC?

    I know the jetway supports SDRAM and DDR. Is your current RAM DDR type? If not, that could be another bottleneck.

    IKE you should just save up and get a whole new system.

    Why? Regular PCI is even slower than AGP 4X.

    ok.. well then i guess that this 6600gt must support agp 4x, it says agp 4x/8x..?

    and also last time i checked the euro was worth more than usd, so i think he may be able to afford this...

    Yeah but running at 4X doesn't let it work at full performance.

    i don't know.. how can i check this?


    so it's possible that a new videocard won't improve my fps much?
