I've never owned a video card before. my old pc had onboard video (G43 chipset) SUCKED. well toased that board and my new board has no onboard graphics. I just assumed that a card, any card would be better than onboard. not wanting to spend the 100-200 on a fancy card I just grabbed $15 special off ebay...gotta be better than onboard right? NOPE. ATI Radeon X1300. before it got here I was thinking hey I might get me a game or two. got FC3 before my first pc broke. FPS was horrible...but now It won't even barely load. anyway I been looking at all the diff cards...ram clock, chip clock, ddr2, gddr5, sdram3, etc.... I don't have no clue what i'm looking at!!l all I know is nice ones got big coolers on them. im not looking to spend over 100, lesser is better, but I still want to maybe play a game everyonce in awhile, even if all the settings are on low. what should I look for in a card. what are some good cards that are cheap. im running 4GHz E5300 4Gb Ram 650w PSU.
