a 256
hmmmm.

i suggest a GEforce fx5200 256 mb. card.

An extreme performer. Excellent card for the money. Plays doom 3 and half life 2 flawlessly at 8 aa and 16 af. 1024x768.

Amazing card. Would've gotten one myself if i hadn't gotten my 6800.

HOpe you get this card.



edit:
I'm looking for a car. With 200 horsepower.

Nice vague question. I"m loving it. Especially because it happens every single time.

If I got the geforce FX 5200, could I just put it in my computer....Will it work cos I have an ASUS A7V Mobo, and my current graphics card is a 3dfx voodoo3, that I want to upgrade??

I'm wondering if I buy it, can I just swap it with my current Graphics card, install the drivers, and get up and going????

Or do I have to check something first???
