AGp video card advice...


#1

Need to get new video card guys…

I want it to be nvidia based and have at least 256 meg and be faster than the 5700LE I have…

But I can’t spend much more than $100.

Any advice?

Thanks

Well, your best bet I believe is to get a used video card for anything that’s worthwhile under $100. Some good used ones are: MSI 6600GT, GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, for High Resolution + Performance I would try ATI’s Radeon x800 or 9800XT- Sorry woot, I will have to mention “It”. “It”-as in Ebay, or probably even Craigslist if it’s local to you.

What type of motherboard do you have? Squeeze some more powah’ out of that card by upgrading your processor or making sure you have an 8x AGP bus. Overclocking is another story but I left that scene 7 months ago…
