I'd try. All computers have some kind of oomph for games, even if they are below requirements. I wouldn't expect you'd be able to run at high res's, you'd have to run at super low settings, and you may still get a jerk here and there.
But it would work...

the cheapest way to get a bump for quake is to buy a Geforce 6200 for dirt cheap and you then stand a major good chance of being able to play it without to much jerkyness and with some settings uped. Just my opinion tis what i would do to make sure.

Default Re: quake 4

That video is onboard right?

I used to have that but recently upgraded to a 6800.

Alot of games say that it will be able to run on a geforce three or higher but on the bottom it says excluding Geforce4 MX.

i would say get a new video card.

Heres a 6200 which will let you play it:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814164056
A review said that this card could handle Quake 4 at low settings

A 6600gt is a MUCH better card that is able to handle most of todays games.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130220
This card can run BF2 and HL2 on high settings.

A 6800 is what i decided to perchase. Now, I have a better computer that you do(no offense), so this card might be bottlenecked by your computer. This means that thee card cannot function fully due to the limitations of your system. The good thing about this card is that when you do upgrade, It will go nicely with your new system.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130202

THESE CARDS WILL ONLY WORK WITH YOUR SYSTEM IF YOU HAVE AN AGP SLOT

If you only have pci, then alas, you dont have many choices.
Heres the best pci i could find:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143032
This one would probsbly be able to hand Quake 4 at the lowest settings.

Hope this Helps!
P.S this is my first really helpfull post!

Yeah, it's a pretty good card. Better than the 6600GT in my opinion. The Geforce 6800 GS Extreme Edition is going to be faster (supposedly) than the Geforce 6800 GT looking at the clock speeds and a little cheaper than the cheapest Geforce 6800 GT available.

Default Re: quake 4

This is the card to get, the 6800GS. I will buy that in a second if I need it. Priced very well for the performance. With the debut of the Geforce 6800 GS, expect the Geforce 6800 and 6800 GT to slowly disappear. When you look at the specifications, the 6800 GS very closely resembles a GeForce 6800. The differences are higher clock speeds that put the fillrate on the GS right under a GeForce 6800 GT (5100 MPixels/second for the 6800 GS and 5600 MPixels/second for the 6800 GT). The memory bandwidth offered is also right on target with what a GeForce 6800 GT offers at 32GB/sec. This means that there is a lot of fillrate and memory bandwidth being offered here for the price of around $250ish. Basically, we have what amounts to a GPU that is just shy of being a 6800 GT if you are just looking at specifications.....Anyways, I had gloat over the card first.

You will need PCI-e support though and I'm not sure if your system has that capabitlity knowing that you're running on an ancient Athlon XP nforce or nforce 2 chipset.

3 years old in the computer world is pretty old though. You will be three generations behind on CPU technology in 2006, lol.

Make sure you got the right slot though. That one needs pci-e.
