well well well i think it is time for a new video card, im on a budget and i was pointed towrds the 7600gt, i need to hear if it it any good, and if its good enough to play games like fear with full setings. your input will be very helpful, thanks
If you're planning to replace that FX5500 then you can't, 7600 GT only comes in PCI-Ex16 flavor. If any, you should replace that FX5500 with a 6800 GS, other than that, I think you can't do it with a 7600 GT.
I play F.E.A.R. with everything maxed out on a 1024x768. Crappy game has no 1280x1024 res. and if I set it to 16x12 then it lags a bit and now I'm used to seeing big a$$ icons that it bothers me to see the little ones then.
