The-Bleh-Bleh;3529259Dont worry, this is the last question today, i promise

So, according to this in system information,

I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF Intel(R) 925X PCI Express Root Port - 2585

I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF RADEON X300 Series

I assume that I have a PCIe card, right.

is PCIe better than the rest of the types???

So my cards a radeon X300 SE that I have now. Heres the real question.

Would it make a really big difference to upgrade to like a 7300 GT DDR3, or would it be best to go a bit higher like to the 7600 GT?

Is the $50 difference worth it???

Right now, in halo I get a good fps with settings on medium... liek 1024 x 768 with medium textures.

And It's probably not my money that would be buying it either, I would have to convince my parents to help... ... so I would have no chance going more expensive than $100-150

You'll be best off with the 7600 gt. Great card and a good bit above the 7300. The 50 bucks extra is worth it in the long run.

a 7600gt would be a HUGE improvement over your x300. Your current card is really no better than the 7300. I have a 7300 in my media pc, & it barely passes for gaming grade. My 7900gt in my gaming rig kicks arse, though.

Yes, you have a PCIe card. All X300 series cards are PCIe.

A 7300GT would be a big improvement, it has double the amount of pixel pipelines and higher clock speeds. I have a 7300GT that i got for $80, you can get them cheaper now and they are actually great cards that many people think are junk because of the 7300 name.

A 7600 would be a better buy though, you can get a 7600GT for around $100.

Your current card is really no better than the 7300. I have a 7300 in my media pc, & it barely passes for gaming grade.

I'm betting you have a 7300GS? The GS is a terrible card where a GT is as fast as a 6600GT.

HEH, the 8300 GT 256mb is about the same amount, and it is a DirectX 10 card. Otherwise the performance should be about equal.
