I'm too cool to Post
13th August 2004
Have a budget of $200-$400 Canadian ($150-$300USD). Play Call of Duty a lot, plan to play Doom 3 a lot, plus Half Life 2/Counter Strike when it comes out. I have heard Doom 3 is optimized for NVIDIA cards, not sure what the other games have been optimized for. Just bought a ViewSonic G90fb 19" monitor, which they say is optimized for [email="1280x1024@85Hz"]1280x1024@85Hz[/email] and [email="1024x768@85Hz"]1024x768@85Hz[/email], but can go up to [email="1600x1200@75Hz"]1600x1200@75Hz[/email]. CPU is currently a P3 500MHz but will very soon be a P4 1.7HGz. Will be running 512MB RAM. The video card being replaced is an NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS/GeForce2 Pro with 32MB RAM. So ... - Video card recommendations? - Resolution & refresh setting recommendations? TIA - R.
