P4 1.7 sockett 423
Asus P4T mb
512 Rdram
Soundblaster Audigy 2
What would be the best (NVIDIA) card for this system without being limited
by the rest of the system? Does anyone have a link that I could find out?
Power supply not a problem. I can upgrade if needed.
Thanks

I could be a little incorrect here but maybe one of the GeForce 4 Ti
cards would suit you right down to the ground...

Now, the reason I put that to you is that your system,, while NOT
being the newest,, is by no means an out-of-date one either.. Yet it
is getting a little long in the tooth,, so I wouldn't go splashing out
on newer graphics cards simply because of the cost factor.. That, plus
the fact that I simply do not know how something like an
FX5700/5800/5900 would go in that system.. You "may" or may not have
compatability issues or find that the FX series just may be a little
out of sequence with the older P4 motherboard - it does happen - I
have been there, done that, with a similar setup just recently.. If I
was you, I would try sticking to equipment developed in the same era,,
so the Ti cards (perhaps a Ti4200 most of all) would be tailor made
for you...

It may not be the greatest card but it will be a "good" card for you -
if you can still find one... Be Quick..!!!

I believe the Williamette 1.7ghz can be overclocked significantly
high... so try messing with that.



As far as a graphics card, for $160 you can get a Geforce FX 5900/XT,
which should hold you over for at least 9 months.
