Thread: Trouble

  1. #1
    Hello, at the moment i have no graphics card at all lol, i have one of those shitty onboard chips, cuz i have a celeron
    also i have no AGP slot, so i have to stick with a PCI card apparantly. if anyone knows what a good PCI card is let me know. My goal is towards being able to play wolfenstein enemy territory. lol
    also i have no idea if i have this information correct at all, it is just what has been told to me.
    i found on this site http://www.pcmech.com/show/video/139/ that PCI may not be a HUGE disadvantage, so if anyone knows any good PCI cards for a reasonable price, please tell me.
    if anyone can help me, reply to this post or PM me

    agreed, but if you're just planning to play Wolfenstein in the next year or two you should go for the cheapest card that can run the game

    its not worth splashing out on a PCI card, when it comes round to upgrading your system you'll need a new card again

    Download a program called Aida32 and run it.It will tell you just about everything you could possibly want to know about your comp.
    If you go to the website that I told you about before www.greenlyph.com he has this card ATI Radeon 32 mb for 41.25 + tax.It is 32 mb and should run wolfenstein with no problems.
    On a side note.I may have a board and processor for sale that you could buy. It is an AThlon XP 1600+ and an ECS KS75a mobo .Not the best combo but probably a hell of a lot better than what you have now.
