New PCI card is Out, this time has 512MB - Page 10

post #91 of 101
Yeah it's news to me. I would love to pick up the 8500GT PCI version of a card that would be pretty sick for basic basic gaming and a backup card for testing

stop saying this isnt news. this is news, and im VERY sure there are LOADS of people out there who love gaming, but cant play anywhere close to new games because they are stuck with PCI. heck, until this school year (thanks to a hefty student loan), i was gaming on a junker with an FX5500 (PCI). these are still good cards for alot of very popular games (ie, CSS, HL2, etc).

so cool it, some people cant afford a brand spanking new computer or motherboard with a pci-e slot.

good news!

He could have a bought a celeron + cheap mobo with integrated graphics for the same price he spent on that terrible video card. And even that would have been atleast 10x faster than what he has now.

In other news, i downloaded the Crysis demo haha, going to install it later tonight. If it works, i will post pictures, if it doesn't work, oh well no big deal. And btw about my computer, i had this computer for years and never felt the need to upgrade to a more powerful computer. Yea at times, i was upset that i couldn't play this game or that game, but i said i will just look forward to playing them when i buy my secondary computer, which will be Vista.

But with the upgrading which i have done = XP home edition sp2, 512MB , and now the ATI Radeon 2400 PRO PCI card, i can play games with ease, well you know the games which i own, which btw are not that old.

Peace

Rofl, this is news to me. I'm in the process of reviving my grandparents old computer which they gave to me. I'm going to use it for just web surfing and stuff, and probably give it to my sister eventually. But it has a Celeron running a little over 700MHz, 64MB of RAM, 2 PCI slots(i'm going to use one for a GPU, and the other for a LAN expansion card), 5 USB1.0 ports, a 10GB HD, and a optical drive. Lol, so like I said, this well help me in just giving it a little extra power. I bookmarked the 8500T . thanks for that

It's not uncommon for people to use PCI video cards for backups in case of they are in the middle of an upgrade or if their better video card fails.
