View Full Version : Recommend a video card

Hi guys, just looking for a video card that has vga, cheap but something that, for example, will run half life 2 on max. it's only temporary so the cheaper the better. Will a geforce 210 cut it?

Thing is, I'm half way through building my desktop, and I want to get it running now then I can just upgrade the parts later on that I haven't got yet.
At the moment, I have:
antec 300
corsair hx650w
Asus m4n98td mobo
Phenom 975be, with hyper 212+
Corsair vengeance 2x4gb 1600mhz cl8
Optical drive
Fans for 'naam

the parts I don't yet have are:
120Gb intel 310 ssd
Asus gtx560ti (sli next year)
24" 248h monitor
logitech g9x mouse
logitech g510 kb
Logitech z906 speakers
Corsair hs1 headset

Was going to go for draytek 120 but orcon is footing the genius thing.

So, I figure, if I get a cheap video card now, chuck a spare laptop hdd in, plug in an old 17" crt, and an old ps/2 kb and mouse, some old crap pc speakers, then I'll be up and running until I can replace the crap parts one at a time. might get ssd on friday.
