what the cheapest vid card with decent performace I should look for? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Thread Starter 
thanks for all the replies.

While EQ2 is a cpu intense game, it does use the graphic cards for stuff, so the card does matter.

Because if it didn't, i'd be happy running it on the Amd with the x300 in it.
(Not to mention i wouldn't of been able to turn on my eye candy with my x1950 pro when i upgraded to that from the 9600 pro i had before.)


But I also play crysis, bioshock, need for speed games, and others, just hadn't been as much because i'd prefer to wait to play them decently, then to muddle thru at low res/low modes.
While i can deal with EQ2 at 15fps, or even lower, I prefer my games to be 30+fps at the very least. and i'm talking 1024x768 res at the lowest.

I need to go pick up a new power supply, foolishly didn't check the one in the computer. oops. =)

I will have 3 gigs of memory in my new computer. Memory upgrade will be next, waiting till i can get a good deal, 4 slots for memory, so either 2gb, or 4gb sticks.

thanks again

Actually, the X1950PRO has a surprisingly low power consumption according to this

The 8800GTS should be fine though I guess

8600GT.

the 2600 pro is only good if its 128bit AND GDDR3, i doubt it is, the 8600GT will stomp it either way. i had a 8600gts and it was ok, maxed most games at 720P or so.
