I have my eye on the GeForce MX 4000 128MB card.
That card will not work in your system .Please read the other post I made and refer to the link so you can see the difference in the card.

GEEZ- Thanks Lurkswithin. I looked all over the place for that. I guess I must have missed it.

Hmmm.. Are there any video cards that would work that are 128mb?


I'm would like to be able to run a couple of games like GTA: San Andreas, and the Hitman series on my computer. Maybe a couple of other ones. So I'm not looking to pay a large amount of money for a new card, if that is possible.

actually I am not sure. I was looking at the aopen model 90 mx4000 128 card and it looks to have the right type of plug but the voltage is what I was looking for and I have not been able to dig it up yet. It is a 4x/8x and I think it is 3 volts but I am not sure.

Default Nvidia rules...

The mx4000/128 is 4x/8x only. The mx400/64 is good from 4x down to 2x. The mx400 will do justis to 3d and gives a sharp clear picture with smooth edges. Lot of bang for the buck.

ok, there are a few 128 cards out there that will work. They will work because they are set up to be backward compatable...meaning they are rated for 8x/4x but will also work in your 2x..just don't look for a lot of high ended gaming with it as it is only going to operate at the speed as determined by your mobo.
here is 128 that will work for you

Default well...

Let me put it this way. I had the mx400 in a p3 which is 1x/2x. I took the card and installed it in my p4 which is 4x/8x. Worked just fine. That card is so flexable it's spooky. The mx4000 is not so flexable. It's either 4x or 8x or not at all. The mx400 I have is the eVGA.com model. $50.00USD.
Be sure before you buy.

Edit: Hey lurkswithin get down with yo bad self. I might look into getting one of those for my p3.
