Need help with old computer/upgrading graphics card
Ok guys I am new here but I have been on forums for a long time. Anyways I have a Sony Rx550 (PCV-7732). I know it is an old computer. It was my first pc and my dad got it for me in 2001. Now he will not let me get a new computer for 9 months. So he said I can upgrade my graphics card on this computer though. It is a Pentium 4 1700 MHZ 1.69 GHZ with 512mb Ram. Anyways I have a AGP 2x/4x slot. And based on research on other websites I have also come to the conclusion that I have a 250 watt power supply. So first thing is first I need someone to confirm that I do indeed have a 250 watt power supply. Next I want to play Battlefield 2 so I want to get a graphics card cus right now I have a Geforce 4 MX4000(I upgraded in the past once). This card is really not supported by any games so I want to get an Radeon 9600. What is the best Radeon 9600(like XT, SE, 256 mb, 128mb) that I can get for $100 or under? And which company should I get it by? Also will this card work on a 250 watt power supply and in an AGP 2x/4x slot? I know the card says AGP 4x/8x, but will it work? Thanks guys. I really appreciate it.
