hi folks

at the mo i have a p3 800 (133 mhz fsb) and 256 megs sd ram on a slot 1 m/board ( latest bios) that runs windows 2000 pro and has agp 2x. i have a 32 meg tnt2 m64 graphics card on it..

what im wondering is, will a new modern pci graphics card perform better than my current graphics card?..does the board's 2x agp limit my choices?.. whats your opinion!!

cheers

Hi Term

An agp Gf 2 card for eg will perform better than your pci tnt2 (it is pci isn't it? would be better anyway) you could probably pick one up for a reasonable price on www.trademe.co.nz try for one with ddr ram.

cool muzzer its actually an agp card..so what ur recommending is a gf 2 card and does it matter that it has ddr ram when my m/board only takes sd ram?..

any geforce or raedon series card will be better than yout tnt2m64. it all comes to done to howmuch performance you want vers $$$ spent.

the 2x agp will limit to performance so getting a top end geforce might be an exspencive choice for the speed you will get. the lower end geforce4 or radeon will still work nicly at a cheaper price.
