hey all!!! im new to the forums and wanted to get some advice on which new video card i sould get because im computer impaired
. I have a Geforce4 mx 64mb vid card <-- funny i kno
that came with the comp, and am looking at either the radeon 9600xt 256mb or the 9800pro 128mb card. before i go any further let me give you my specs:
pentium4 @ 2.4GHz w/533MHz fsb / 512k L2 cache
512MB DDR SDRAM at 266MHz
120Gb hard drive
DSL broadband connection
Wich would work best with my setup and not create any bottle neck type problems? Im a CS junkie so im planning on running HL2 on my comp and i deff want to have a decent fps while playing CS:source online. Would there be any power concerns with either of these cards? im not even sure how many watts my power source is... how can i find out? One other question i have is why is a 256MB card less then a 128MB? Will this make any differance in performance? Plez any information would be great, i NEED to learn so show me the ropes!!!!
