Expect to pay around $120 for this card. It should be pretty good. If you have alot of memory and a fast CPU, it should be fine. Are you looking to do a lot of 3D gaming like Doom 3, Half life 2 and FarCry?

I am planning on paying 80 for it, I will get a bit of discount as well (My mate's dad own's the shop) so I think it's not a bad offer.....

I only have 320MB Of SDRAM, and only have a 800MHZ Processor (AMD)

I am planning on upgrading my RAM to 512MB of DDRAM.

How do I check if this card will work with my computer. I currently have a 3dfx voodoo3....

Oh yeah, And yes I am planning to buy the card for gaming....Doom 3 and Half life 2, But also some older games such as -

Grand Theft Auto Vice City
Max Payne 2
Need For Speed Underground
Hitman 2

Edit, I just read the link, and it says that the minimum system requirement....Some of these I don't know, Can someone please halp me out?

1) It says you need a minimum of 300W power supply? How do I check this?

2) You need an Intel P3 or P4, With AGP 2.0 or later. What does "AGP 2.0" mean and how do I check is my computer has this?

Thanks for the help

Then I suggest you get a better processor or you are likely to get problems because your old one is old
