wel, i have a decent pc : 2 GB ram, 3.40 ghz but i can't play my stalker game with lighting because of my videocard.. it's a NVIDIA geforce 6200 turbocache(TM) in my opinion, a bit to "oldskool"

so i want to replace it with a better videocard, my wet dream: NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GT but now i ask... can i replace this card simply, or has it another input then the 6200? or are there any complications? cause i don't want to buy the card to then notice i also have to buy new motherboard... grtz




whatwhere

I want to be like the Admins

the 8800 GT i believe is PCI-E as long as your motherboard accepts PCI-E vid cards then it will work.

What whatwhere said. If your motherboard has a PCI-Express slot, then it should work with your motherboard. If your motherboard is just AGP, then you will have a problem. Why go for an 8800 GT? The 9 series cards are out, and in MY opinion, are better and cheaper.
