This belongs in PC hardware, and the ProSavage is only a good card for general usage (e.g. web surfing, typing word documents, etc.), but for pure power it doesn't even cut it at all.

Minimum level you should go for, for a combination of general usage along with casual gaming is a GeForce2 MX or ATI Radeon 7200 range.

BTW, welcome to the board.

Depending on how much money you want to spend, I would recommend staying away from the MX line of card. For a reasonable price, you can get a GeForce 2 Ti200, and I'd take that over any line of Geforce4 MX's.

Bottom line comes down to what you need it for, and how much you want to spend. As for your current card, GeForce pretty much covered it above

The performance with the MX cards is just not that great
The Ti's are much better without question.

The GeForce4 MX is simply feature lacking; most people expecting many of the Ti features will be sorely disappointed.

GeForce3 Ti 200's (64mb) are less than $90 now; a nice deal indeed.
