Here is the deal, my son has a gaming computer from a couple of years ago. The specs are below -
AMD X2 64 5000+ (2.6 GHZ I believe)
2 Gig Memory
8600GT 512 MB
Corsair 750 Watt PSU
WinXP 32 bit
Nothing is OC'd and all is at stock speeds .. He just got MW2 and plays it comfortably at high settings with resolution set to 1024 x 768. For Christmas we will be getting him a new monitor, SCEPTRE X226W-1920 Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor...
I really want him to be able to take advantage of this bigger monitor since right now he has a little 17 - 18" monitor. It's pretty old and not that clear, not good for gaming at all. So he has about $90 to spend on a new video card and I'm trying to find him something that he can play MW2 at a higher resolution with the same settings he is running now, 2x AA and everything else on high.
It doesn't have to be a maxed out res just higher than 1024 x 768 that he is running right now.
I'm partial to Nvidia and was looking at a 9800GT 512 MB. Will that do the trick? If there is a cheaper option that would be great as well as he doesn't really want to blow all his money on a video card.
Any help is appreciated.. Thank you all...
