Looking to upgrade my GPU

1080 Views 26 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Malaziel
I would like to hear some advice from the experts.
I have a P4 2.4GHz 478socket, 512MB RAM (of which I don't know the specs) and an old NVidia GPU GForce with 64MB RAM (@200MHz IIRC).
I am looking to replace my GPU and I would like to stay with NVidia because it has been proved robust. I am not a super-gamer neither I use my PC for super dupper entertainment. I am looking for something cheap that will offer a great improvement to my current setup. It would be nice to enjoy some games without the quality compromises I currently have and watch a movie without freezing.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Edit: The Mobo is an ASUS P4P800S-X

truely the 5500 just sucks... waste of money and time spent, so the 6600 as we said is the best bet for you,you will love the performance it has over what u have and it will last for a while too... leadtek is just a hardware company that sells computer parts, the sell geforce type videocards, geforce is the GPU type, there are other manufacturers that sell geforces such as XFX,eVGA,MSI,Inno3d...so on...
