View Full Version : Good graphics card?

01-12-2007, 06:20 PM
I was wondering, what can I get for 150-200 bucks for graphics cards? I currently am going to have 150 after I buy 1 gig of RAM, but then another 50-70 more after I sell my Game Boy Player. Any recommendations?

Just a quick question on that, mook: Does that thingy have that Digital Vibrance thing? I'm kinda looking more towards nvidia because I heard Digital Vibrance is awesome...

Holy crap that's a lot. Nevermind, I solved this myself, I found something that's pretty close in greatness to what m00k posted, except it's this:

I kinda have another question...would this (http://cgi.ebay.com/INFINEON-1GB-PC3200-400MHZ-DDR-RAM-MEMORY-184PIN-PC-400_W0QQitemZ230074832542QQihZ013QQcategoryZ74942Q QrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item230074832542) be compatible with this?

Yes, your mobo supports DDR400 (PC3200) 184-pin ram modules. Remember that.

Your mobo: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?cc=us&docname=c00208497&lc=en

Just go to that site if you have any questions about compatibility.

Oh, and how can you be so sure about the quality of that ram? Not to mention the 3-cas latency. I usually go for 2.5 minimum, 2 preferably, but it doesn't matter too much unless you are a super hardcore gamer/pc enthusiast.

Well, I just want to boost my ram a bit, and get a new graphics card that will last me a while. I'm not a "hard core PC gamer" who has games that take 1000 dollar cards...more like I want to play games like Oblivion, BF: 2142, Age of Empires 3(with no stupid lag) Company of heroes, etc.

With that video card and atleast 1gb ram you'd be able to play those games just fine. And with maybe a bit more ram you could turn your settings way up.

I still prefer my x1950 XT to it any day. 11700 in 3dmark05. He wanted digital vibrance so I posted the 7950 gt.
If i was you I'd wait for the 8600 GT.
