Thread: New Vid Card , Somewhat Old Comp

  1. #1
    I am running a 1.8ghz 512 ram comp with an old Geforce 2 MX/MX400. I havnt been able to play any of the newer games under acceptible 1024 x ... or higher graphics resolutions. With my current computer what would be the best vid card i could get and still be around my budget? Prefably a NVidea or Radeon. Also with the Holiday season coming up, when would be a good time to buy a card? Before or after christmas?

    Radion is definatly the best, but you will spend more on it. If you wanna get a good card, but dont wanna spend a lot, get a GeForce 4 ro GeForce 4 fx

    I would look at the Ati 9500 pro before the 9600. Im not sure of the price now but it is better in the tests I saw. The Ti 4200 card is nice also for nvida..

    Well, i d/l games off of BT, most of the up-to-date games whicha re pretty graphically demanding. I also play games like BF1942, KOTOR, Unreal 2003, NFSU, etc, basically somewhat graphically demanding games which employ DX8 or higher. My graphics card right now jsut cant handle most of the games, the play is sluggish and im not gonna have time forever to goof off and play games (college is gonna be a bitch)
