Originally posted by FlederMaus! Definitely, a good video card handles a lot of the load. I would say the minimum video card for decent graphics is a GeForce 2 mx400. A friend at work got a 1.8ghz HP that came with at Nvidia tnt 64 uh...32meg card. Anyway, his computer benchmarked 900 points under 3dmarks 2001 se. Immediately after that, we put in his new gf4 4200 and it was up near 8000 if I remember right. It was dramatically better. I have a Pentium II 400 with a gf2 mx400 in it and it way WAY outperformed his newer system, getting something like 2500 points. If you have an older graphics card, put a Geforce 4 on your Christmas list!

Maybe the Gainward Ti200 (Geforce 3), or a Gainward Ti4200 (Geforce 4) My card is outperformed by a Geforce 2 GTS 32MB, a Geforce 3 will provide plenty of ectra performance.

Rusty, it is amazing what you learn about these from friends and when you encounter a problem you have to fix. Much nicer to rely on yourself to fix a puter-problem than take it to a shop so they can fix it. Advice from friends is free, shops are not so nice.

People in the U.S. should look at www.newegg.com for parts. Quality, pricing and good service.

Got all the goods from Newegg about a year ago. Under $1000.00 :dance:
