Default Re: Upgrading Video Card

He just wants to upgrade his video card. You guys go off onto gettin a new psu.. and then its all like.. no no, you need more/better ram to do that. And oh no, that ram wont do, get this ram, only catch is it requires a new mobo. And with that mobo.. get this ultra cool super gaming amd processor. And with that, why not just get the extra space, because you just got a new damn computer!!

A great video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127164 is this. It doesn't need a 4 pin connector and works very well. This card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103159 is also great for the money and doesn't need a 4 pin. If those are too expensive, this one works well for the money: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814153012 Hope this helps.
Perfect post. And leave it at that.

Thanks guys. Sorry I didn't respond earlier, been really busy with school =(.

Anyways, my motherboard is a Intel D845EBT and I'm wondering whether that ATI diamond card will work with it. If it does, that'll be the one I get.

Otherwise, I'd get the first card, the nividia one.


The mobo is about 4-5 years old.

Again, thanks.

Yhea, I think that is the mobo.

I was under the impression it was older.

i have a diamond viper 9600xt in an older comp and i have to say its a pretty decent card, of course a 6600gt is far better but if you're not into any graphic intensive games such as fear or bf2 then the 9600xt will be fine
