I've had my computer for 2 years, and at the time it was the best out there, it is still now decent but not that great, but it shouldnt be running how it is. I am quite sure it is the video card, and i was looking for a second opinion.

Specs:
P4 Processor 1.8 GHz
512 MB RAM
80 GB
Windows XP Home
GEFORCE2 GRAPHIC CARD (i feel outdated :p)

If you think its the video card, what would be a good replacment for UNDER $200.

Thanks,
tiny

is your card a geforce 2 mx400 if so it is a very slow card i would recomend ati 9600 xt or 9600 pro i heard those are both good cards and not that expensive. I will be buying the 9700 pro or the 9800 pro when i get the money :)

If you can get hold of a saphire 9800 pro id go with that for obvious reasons..... its better than the 9600xt. (U might consider one of the 10dollar coolers for it but hey thats only 10 dollars! [dont quote me on the price - i just know u can get the artic coolers here in uk for bout 7 pounds and im estimating!])

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
