Well I currently have a nVidia GeForce FX 5200, and I find it satisfactory for my gaming needs. I'll probably upgrade to a better graphics card in the future.

Also LOL to the above poster's post.

i have an nVidia FX5200 Plus, it sucks. it is a PCI card cuz i dont have an AGP or PCI Express slot Evil or Very Mad (damn eMachines) but i want to get a new PC with an ATI X800XL (Best card for under $300) and an Athlon 64 3200+
WickedGravity
Saddest part is I know I have an ATI something, but I have no idea what it is.

It has a TV Tuner, a nice little refresh rate and the whole nine yards, call it state of the art as of a year ago.

I really should be more mindful of the software that I use to get the job done shouldn't I?

hey i hav a savage4 pro card with 32mb ram and say what,,as soon as i bought it, the damned s3graphics guys stopped suipport for it. even when downloading drivers from chinese sites,,its the slowest ever,,doesnt support any games. it gets so hot,,it burns coz it doesnt hav cooling fan.

STRONG RECOMMENDATION IS NOT TO BUY ANY GRAPHICS CARD FROM SAVAGE4,,coz u never know..

GE force is the best card conmmpliant with maximunm games

GeForce 4 MMX 440! The worst!!! I relly must by new!!!

I recently got the Radeon 9800 Pro....I WAS planning on getting 6600GT from nVidia but it looked like my machine had a compatability issue with Geforce chipsets!!

So....I settled for the 9800, which IS a good card but....it runs TOO hot for my comp.
I can barely play a simple 3D game before the computer restartes. Even with the case off AND a short standing fan blowing hell hard on to the board it would restart. It takes a little longer mind you but....doesn't help.

Any suggestions??? Rolling Eyes

Does your motherboard have AGP 8x support?
If not, I think you should get your motherboard upgraded.

Sometimes, when the graphics card is latest and the motherboard is an old one, it does have a problem trying to match up to the card's speed.
This is often indicated by games crashing within minutes or system restarting when you're using some high-end 3D software.

I have an NVIDIA 5700LE that thinks it is an NVIDIA Quatro FX1100. The drivers are much more efficient for the Quatro, and the GPU is essentially the same... My processor is a Pentium 4 @3.2 gHz (originally 2.1). My case is a custom case that I am adding a window to and added several ventilation fans to cool my overclocking. My case came originally as a micro ATX case, so the PSU mount was vertically mounted over my processor, so I de-cased my PSU and hard-mounted it on the roof of the case so it would allow more airflow to the processor. I probably will invest in watercooling soon, as my computer sounds like an airplane taking off.

Thanks for the reply prithvi...but my comp is a fairly new machine. Built it only about 4 months now, so....I've got everything necessary for a decent performance. The board is 8x supported, but the thing is that I had a 5200 fx prior to the 9800 pro, and it never worked properly on my comp. So...I'm wonderig if there is a problem with the AGP on the board. I think it's highly unlikely but...I'm running out of ideas. I did use an aged PCI VGA while I was waiting for the Radeon and it worked fine. Better than the 5200fx.

My last case resort will be to buy a second motherboard to test with.

Anyway....if you have any more suggestions I'll be glad to hear them.

Thanks again.

I have an ATI 9600 non pro All in Wonder card. It may not be the fastest card out there but the features (cable tv in, RCA composite in/out, S video in/out 4 display capability 2tvs, 2 moniters, and video capture.) that the card really out weigh the speed plus I have been able to bearly overclock it to pro speeds it was really hot though. I had ramsinks on it ab 80mm case fan blowing on the card with the stock black heat sink. I did not leave it there though because after several days it started generating errors and once I took it back down to stock speeds and it went away.

radeon 9800 pro 128MB

I dont see a reason (now) to get a better card, unless you do graphic design or movie editing.I get all the benefits of DX9, smooth play with 6x anti aliasing, I expect this card to be good for the next year or year in a half. The reason people buy more expensive cards, it's not cause their faster, cause a $200 card will handle the weight of the current games and such, it's because people do not want to spend money upgrading in less than 3 years time. From experience I found that a video card will last with smooth play and full graphics for about 3 years. Besides if your proccessor is not fast enough, that 500 dollar card you buy gives little to no improvement. So I suggest instead of getting the biggest and best video card, get a better proccessor and evem more ram. The only thing that will always improve software performance, no matter what software you use, even if you're using a damn command line OS, is ram. So recap of what should be upgraded first:

1. CPU (and mobo if need be)
2. RAM
3. Video Card/HD (depending on your current Hard drive, i.e. if you now have a 5400 RPM HD, then upgrade to a faster HD first)
4. Sound Card.

No! Mad

there are no 9600 series that work with 256 megabit.

I said that i have 256 mega Byte(B) and 128 mega bit(b).

When you say Byte you write a capital B and when you say bit you write a regualr b.

My video card is a 256 MB GeCube Radeon 9550.. ts really great its too bad that my RAM is low.. (384MB) Very Happy .. I have made the jump from nvidia to ATI.. ATI is very good. and i have no complaints regarding their customer support.

I'm a hardcore gamer and this vid card really answers my needs.. I guess the next thing that i should invest is a pair of 512MB of RAM

I have a pretty old graphics card. A nice Visiontek Geforce3 Ti500 with 64MB. I'm still pretty happy with it though as I rarely play any video games anymore and the video games that I do play aren't exactly graphic heavy. Such as Gunbound, Counter-Strike and Warcraft 3.

if you got a 128MB card then you could keep it around for a couple of more years. Now it would be wise to upgrade at the beginning of next year

Well, considering I really don't play any graphic intensive games, there really isn't any point in upgrading my video card at the moment. All I really do on my computer is surf the internet, check my email, watch movies, listen to music, and type up documents of sorts. So I am still content with what I have. Eventually, I might upgrade it. But if I do, I'm going to build a whole new system.

My graphic card is Gygabyte Radeon X800 XL and I am very pleased with it. I have never had a better graphic card before. Half-Life 2 on 1280 X 1024, anti-aliasing 4x, and all highest graphics didn't go below 60 fps, and that is very good if ask me!
This card has my recommendation!

I use a recently bought X800 XL by 3D Connect. I spent $269 on it from monarch computer. In every review i've seen in magizines and online, it's the best bang for the buck. It doesn't exactly keep up with the $400 dollar cards, but it plays Doom3, Farcry, HL2, all on high settings and 60ish fps. Yeah gamo? Sounds like your video card might be overheating and shuting itself off or something. There are TONS of cool tools and utilities for ATI cards on the internet. http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/ has a tool called atitool. You can overclock, tweak tons of memory settings, and see what the temp on your card is... if supported. I recommend tring it. It's just an EXE so you don't have to install it or anything. peace out-
