I was wondering, yes my computer sucks, but, I was wondering, what would be the best graphics settings for my system specs? AMD Durpn 750mghz Proccessor 256mb Ram GeForce 2 MX/MX400 And I'm hoping to get that GeForce Ti 4000 or whatever for christmas. My friend told me that he suggested I upgrade my pc before I get a Radeon. So, what should I do? I want a Radeon, but then I REALLY want a Ti 4000, so could you please suggest what I can put all the settings on, for like graphics and stuff, with good performance. And with the Ge-Force Ti4000 what I can put my settings on. And what does the Bodycount setting do? Also what does Sync every frame mean to? I play on getting a 128/256mb video card. I hope it works on my motherboard. Thanks. :bows:

I know your dilemma. I use to have a piece of crap computer like yours. I see you want a radeon. If your trying to fing a bargain, go for a radeon 9600. Those cards are cheap and are compatible with most mother boards. I geforce 4 4000 is a nice video card. I dont see any problem with the geforce but some compatability issues I found with it. If you want the good stuff, go for the radeon 9600. I see you also asked for some system settings on the video card once you get it. The only settings that you should use that involve tweeking its performance is the overclock ability. This makes the card work more than its normal ability. DO NOT OVERCLOCK UNLESS YOU HAVE A PROFFESIONAL INSTALL A COOLING SYSTEM!!!! well, if you want to no more, give me a ring.
I'm too cool to Post

Sorry to say UnknownSoldier but even if you got a Radeon9800 Pro 256mb you wouldnt notice much of a performance increase cause of your processor.
I am speeking from experience because i had a Duron 900Mhz with a Radeon 7000 then i upgraded to a GeForce Ti4600 and didnt see much of an improvment ( i still had to run everything on LOW detail )
I would recommend buying a processor/motherboard first then worry about the graphics card.
