Alright, so I've pretty much stopped playing resurrection of evil due to the 9 FPS I am getting and I've decided a need a real graphics card for my computer. Here is the computer specs-Gateway 831GM-
I've pretty much settled on a Leadtek 6600GT since it doesn't cost too much, many people like it, and it seems to be able to play doom better as opposed to say, the ATI card in it's price range.
I'm confused about the whole PCI thing so I'd like to know if this card will work on my computer. I've read that PCI is not as good as AGP, but PCI-Express is better than AGP and AGP will eventually die out. It does say 1 PCI Express x16 Slot on the computer spec sheet so I assume it will work right?
Also, how hard is it to install on a computer. Is it something that I can do myself or do I need to take it somewhere like best buy?
Thanks for any help
