Would like to upgrade the video card in a Gateway system I bought back in 2001. The system came with Win ME, a 1.3ghz Pentium 4 chip, Intel Monterrey Motherboard, 256mb of RAM, 20gb HD, 250 watt PS, Sound Blaster Live Value Sound Card and a 32MB NVIDIA GeForce2 MX AGP Video Card.
I've since upgraded the OS to Win XP, bumped the RAM to 512mb, and replaced the tiny 20gb 4500rpm HD with a Seagate 300gb 7200rpm drive. I tried to upgrade the PS but found out it's a Proprietary type so I guess I'm screwed there.
I'm not heavy into gaming, the boys and I play Half-Life, MechWarrior, and some other older games but the current NVIDIA card just doesn't seem to hack it as we get slowdowns and freeze-ups in parts of some games.
My question is, would this video card
be a decent, low-budget upgrade that would greatly improve our gaming experience? Would it integrate and work with my ancient six year old system? Any knowledgeable advice would be welcomed.
