First let me start of by saying WOW. Now that, that is out of the way. Man I have not been keeping up with hardware for years and now I am way out of the loop with what I thought was a groovy rig that still runs well. But now I am running into issues with old hardware and new games.
So without completely breaking the bank, is there any way I could keep this old rig running. The moment I realized I had an issue. New game came out needs minimum support of Shader Model 3.0. The current card only supporst up to 2.0 I also no that the directx version for XP only supports up to 3.0
So I am stuck at a crux find a card to limp along(anybody got any ideas on something or is it time to start preparing myself for a full build and just not letting my wife know about it?
