Hi i want to buy a new graphics card for my birthday but I dont know what one get. My pc is a Advent 3519.

3.4 GHZ H-T
1024MB RAM PC2700 <- I might upgrade to 2048MB
250GB HDD
16x DVD, DVD-RW DUAL

My current graphics card is a Geforce FX5700 256MB. The graphics cards compatible with my motherboard are:

Maybe the X800 GTO AGP 256MB or X1600 PRO AGP 512MB

I would be grateful if you could get back to me as fast as you could

Thank you so much

Richard

X800GTO FTW! It should be the best out of that group. The 512MB won't help the X1600Pro that much anyway...

2 gb of memory is only helpfun in a very small number of games, do your research first before you go buy another gig of ram just to play half-life 2.....


oblivion and BF2 are the only games that I know that actually can use the extra gig.

If you go with a Sapphire AGP X800GTO you would likely be able to unlock 4 pixel pipelines in it for a total of 16, if you are intereseted in that kind of thing.

I have one of the Sapphire cards unlocked and I am pretty pleased with it. It isn't the fastest card available but it didn't break the pocket book like they do.
