Default Re: Good PCI Video Card

lol my 9800 pro with a 2.7ghz celeron ran CSS @ 1024x768 with no more than 25fps and that was a fps spike. i wouldnt suggest getting a pci video card. its a waste of money unless you do very very very little gaming

Celeron's are bad. If you're going ot get a new computer, get an AMD. They're much better for gaming. You ould buy a really decent rig for about 600USD.

no dont tell him that, the new intels are very nice for gaming, remember you can only see up to 60fps and then its all the same, only thing AMD does better in games is takes the FPS into the hundreds no problem at all. intels arent as good for gaming but the new SLI intel set-ups are awesome. and if ur like me and u do gaming plus other stuff its worth it to get intel instead. thats just my opinion btw. i felt my 2.7ghz celeron worked faster at everything except gaming that i normally do.
